Default Re: Andres Nocioni

Noc is my boy for sure. He might be payed to much, but that isn't his fault. He ended the season playing terrible, but i can see why considering his minutes evaporated very quickly, and the Bulls rotation was never consistent. Noc was the best player on the Bulls last season for like a 2 month span atleast earlier in the season when everyone else sucked. I love the dude, because he is so dedicated to his team. Nocioni even said that after your with a team for a certain amount of time, it becomes your family, and thats why he always wants to be a Bull. He plays hard and furiously, and puts a W before anything else.

If BG doesn't make it back to the Bulls this season, we will w/out a doubt need Noc more than we ever did in any previous season he's been here. Noc will get more minutes with BG gone, and the Bulls can play Deng and Noc together alot more. I am expecting nothing less than 14-15 ppg outta Noc next year with respectable minutes logged.


All that being said, tomorrow morning(friday) will be possibly the first time I have ever rooted against Noc. It'd be nice to see him have a good game but see Argentina get steam rolled. In the END, it's all about the Red,White, and Blue.

GO REDEEM TEAM, WE OWN THIS ****!!!!!!!!!!

I agree with all of that. Nocioni will be a key contributor this year because he will be the leading scorer off the bench. Thinking about it just now, our 2nd stringers might have the most energy/athleticism of any unit in the league with Rose, Thabo (assuming Hinrich and Hughes start), Noc, TT, and Gray (doesn't really fit, but had to put him in anyway). If we don't score, we will at least cause fits for the other team.

As I said before, the only things I want Noc to work on are taking better shots and not complaining so much. If those are the only two things he needs to work on, that's pretty good. I don't think his defense will ever be great, but he is by no means bad.

Maybe this could be the year we try Deng out at SG for a bit. I know they started that last year, but it never stuck after a few preseason games. If you want to get Nocioni more playing time, put him at SF and Deng at SG. That would probably only work against bigger teams and only for short periods of time, but it would be a good way to get more minutes for Noc. I don't think he will see much time at PF, with Gooden, TT, and Simmons there.

Personally, I'm a fan. I love how he plays the game. Physical, good shooter, exceptional defense, and really can get under a teams skin.

What is your guy's opinion?

Take it away...

I think you got to consider it just because of his age I believe hes 28 or 29.....plus he plays well as a starter and you really cant play him at 4 in the lineup with deng every night just because the other 4's are bigger in the league......I think the rumors are ligit just for the simple fact that there wont be enough time shared with him and Deng, who will be here for the next 6 years......

Now, about the topic! I love Nocioni's game! I hope the Bulls keep him. Deng will get his minutes, we all know that. I just hope that Nocioni get's his...either at SF or spot duty at PF. Having Gooden and Tyrus creates even more of a logjam though. 4 guys.... all deserve minutes. If anyone gets traded, I hope it's Gooden. Who knows...maybe they'll package Gooden and Gordon somewhere.

Lol. That was all last week, everything is good now. It's too bad you were gone for a week though, you missed so much.

While Undisputed and myself were arguing we were contacted by CBS for one of their proposed new reality shows, John Paxson sent us a proposal for a Texas style steel cage death-match with ticket sales going to the charita-Bulls foundation, and Vince Mcmahon asked us to be one of his new tag-team groups.

It just so happens that agents and Lawyers for both Undisputed and myself liked the idea so much that they found a way to combine all three. I can't tell you how the whole things ends ( you'll have to watch the show and buy the PPV at the end) but we are shooting the 3rd episode right now.

The script calls for us to drive by your house tomorrow and sucker-punch you as you walk out the door. A few super-slams and a sleeperhold and we are all good. Our lawyers have advised us not to worry if you sue, it will just make both of our public profiles huge.

I think the question you should be asking yourself Vmdv12 is...So what cha gonna do when Undisputed and CelticForce come lookin' for you?????!!!!!!


OUCH!!!!!!!

I like Noc's game.

Not many players like him in the league...too many cats want 2 be pretty. A player like Noc will help is when we have to get players like Pierce, Lebron, and Smith out of their comfort zone.
