Thank you to all those who show me love throughout my journey,” Noah captioned his post. It appears that Noah wants to retire as a Bull. Apparently, he played his best during his time with the Bulls. He’s also a fan favorite due to his defensive mindset, which helped his team climb through the playoffs.

Noah’s Unpleasant NBA Career

Joakim Noah was close to reaching the top during his time with the Chicago Bulls. Unfortunately, the Bulls suffered from Derrick Rose’s knee injury, which also led him to depart from the team. Noah joined the New York Knicks back in 2016. However, he only played for a very limited time due to his injuries. He also received a 20-game suspension for a doping violation. After that, he joined the Memphis Grizzlies in 2018 with an average of 7.1 points per game. However, his career wasn’t fruitful with the Grizzlies. Due to this, he decided to join the Los Angeles Clippers in 2020. However, the team ended up waiving him with only five appearances.

NBA: The Iconic Bulls-Heat Rivalry

Back in 2011, The Miami Heat’s Big 3 of LeBron James, Dwyane Wade, and Chris Bosh dominated the league. However, it was also the MVP year of Chicago Bulls point guard Derrick Rose. The Bulls led by Joakim Noah and Rose faced the Heat led by the Big 3 in the Eastern Conference Finals. The Bulls did a surprising game 1 victory against the Heat. However, the Heat took over the rest of the semi-finals and defeated the Bulls, 4-1.

Noah impressed a lot of fans for the effort he put with the Bulls. Despite not winning a championship, fans are still thankful for everything he’s done. Now, fans from social media are asking the Chicago Bulls to retire his jersey. Noah’s post about his retirement also received comments like, “So proud of you” and “Congratulations on a great Basketball career.”

Meanwhile, Derrick Rose and the New York Knicks will face the San Antonio Spurs on March 3, 2021.
