Forward Dirk Nowitzki, who has matched wits against Gasol both in the United States and abroad, knows the 14-year veteran is back at the top of his game again following back-to-back injury-riddled seasons with the Lakers. "He’s obviously a smart player,’’ Nowitzki said. "I think he fits with them great. "He’s very, very unselfish.’’ Fort Worth Star-Telegram

"He looks healthy, he’s scoring inside and he’s hitting the mid-range shots and he’s rebounding,’’ coach Rick Carlisle said Monday. "Nineteen (points) and 11 (rebounds), those are all-star numbers. "And he’s in a situation now where he doesn’t have to play super heavy minutes, so it keeps him fresh all year. He’s one of many really difficult weapons you’ve got to deal with with the Bulls.’’ Fort Worth Star-Telegram

Unlike Tyson’s bite of Evander Holyfield’s ear, however, Garnett didn’t connect with his, and no one even noticed at the time. When asked about it after the game, Noah did his best to play up the incident. “Yo, man, he tried to bite me, man,” Noah said. “That’s crazy man. I mean, it’s unbelievable. New York Post

During Sunday’s 102-84 loss to the Bulls, the Nets’ forward was caught by television cameras pretending to chomp down on Noah’s right hand as the two jostled for position. “I know how to bite somebody,” Garnett said with a laugh afterward. “Obviously I was messing around in that moment. If I wanted to bite him, I’d have just … shout out to Mike Tyson.” New York Post

"When it comes to basketball, I listen to myself," Rose said. "I have a lot of confidence in myself and my talent, and I know where I'm going to be in a couple of weeks. I know where I'm going to be at the end. It's just that y'all are going to be surprised to see me there, but it's just going to take time." CBSSports.com

Does it matter that he makes $20 million a year? Should it? That he's 26 years old? That it's an 82-game season and the Bulls need Rose at his best in May and June -- not November and December? "I think he handles it well," Gibson said. "At times, I think he maybe gets frustrated because he's constantly got people on his back every day. 'How are you feeling, how are you feeling, how are you feeling?' I would be pissed at times because every day, it's an issue – so many people just constantly on your back and constantly poking at you. But that's the life we live." CBSSports.com
