(Chicago Bulls Joakim) Noah’s star dimmed the past season, one year after he garnered MVP votes and was named the NBA’s defensive player of the year. After knee surgery the previous summer, he never found his way back to form. He limped around the court, futilely chasing both opposing power forwards and his past.

But one gets the sense Noah isn’t kidding when he talks about being “ready to rumble.” When he gets the ball on the baseline and dunks with authority for the first time, you will hear it.

“I’m hungry right now,” he said. “I don’t want to talk about it too much, but the way last year played out and how I felt like I really struggled, I just want to be as right as possible, just for the team.”
