Joakim Noah looking forward to Bulls-Knicks games next season, says his shoulder is ‘feeling good’
After missing out on most of last season with the Chicago Bulls due to season-ending left shoulder surgery due to a dislocation in January, Joakim Noah decided to sign with the New York Knicks in free agency this summer.
Looking ahead to next season, Noah seems to have fully recovered from the injury and is excited to face off against his former team, via K.C. Johnson of the Chicago Tribune.
“I think the Bulls-Knicks games are going to be good ones. I’m looking forward to it. I think everybody is. It’s going to be a very competitive game with a lot of emotions. I’m trying to stay in the moment and focus on being as healthy as possible.”
Noah noted that his shoulder is “feeling good” as is his attitude towards the Bulls. Despite the sour end to his time in Chicago, the two-time All-Star feels no ill will towards the team:
“I have no anger towards nobody. If we had a couple rough years at the end, I’m just still so grateful for the opportunity the Bulls gave me. It’s like a family to me. Even though it’s a new chapter for the end of my career to be in New York, I think Chicago is always going to be a home to me.”
With a healthy arm and a fresh outlook, Noah’s future looks bright in the Big Apple.
