This could change in the 2012-13 season as Noah has been working out with all-time NBA great Kareem Abdul-Jabbar over the summer, according to Gary Washburn of the Washington Post. (h/t ProBasketballTalk.com)

If there was anyone to consult with on low-post game, Kareem is the man to do it. He is the NBA's all-time leading scorer, largely in part to his moves down low.
Noah has averaged 8.9 points per game during his career, and put up 10.2 points per game last season. If Noah can get his average around 14 to 15 points, he will become a viable weapon on both sides of the court for Chicago.
Having Noah as a real post option will help out his teammates as well. It will open up perimeter opportunities, creating an inside-outside game the Bulls haven't had in recent memory.
As D-Rose continues his rehab, Chicago fans can turn its attention to whether or not Noah's offseason mentoring will translate to a new, improved Noah on the court.
