No. 43 Joakim Noah
Joakim Noah is just that special. His basketball skill set isn’t anything great, eye-popping, or jaw-dropping, but he does a lot of things extremely well which makes him an invaluable member of your team, especially if you want to win basketball games. Not to mention the fact that he’s a natural born leader with a penchant for deflecting attention his way, leaving his teammates the freedom to just play their games.
It’s no wonder other teams want him, but the Bulls would be crazy to get rid of him, especially now with the collection of talent they’ve been able to assemble over the summer.
Consider that in the 64 regular season games he played in last year, his 2.1 assists per game ranked him top 10 among all centers in the NBA. His 11 rebounds per game placed him third. He was top 10 in double-doubles with 28, and in the Playoffs, fughedaboutit. His numbers were even more ridiculous.
