Can Joakim Noah help power the Chicago Bulls to the Eastern Conference Finals this year?

The All-Star big man is having the best season of his professional career, averaging career highs in various categories.  

He is arguably the NBA’s top all-around center and possibly the best at the position not named Dwight Howard or a healthy Andrew Bynum.  

It will be a major challenge for the Bulls to reach the conference finals, where they landed two years ago and should’ve made it to last season if it wasn’t for Derrick Rose’s devastating ACL injury.   

Chicago possesses the tools to make a deep run in the playoffs. Their lineup includes a former MVP point guard in Rose (if he returns this season), as well as 2013 All-Star Luol Deng and quality power forward Carlos Boozer.

And, of course, Tom Thibodeau is one of the top coaches in all of basketball. However, the Bulls can’t make it far without Noah’s contributions on both ends of the floor.
