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

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.
