...and not just an eye .... but eyes.
Jimmy Butler out for select team with a groin, but all eye on DRose starting Monday afternoon in Sin City.
Noah doesn't like LeBron, but he respects him. Knows Bulls have a tough road to go through LBJ and the Cavs but believes they can do it.
Jo on LBJ's switch to CLE "We want to beat LeBron James, we want to beat the Miami Heat, we want to beat all those teams who are in our way"
Noah on potential title "Every day I work out that's all I think about, is just how great that party would be after we win the championship"
Noah is very confident in the moves the Bulls made and is looking forward to watching Derrick Rose in the World Cup of Basketball.
Talked to Joakim Noah for a couple minutes at an adidas event this afternoon. He played a little easy 3-on-3 and says he is feeling good.

After 83 season..Dallas Green's final two choices..Jim Frey and Joe Torre.
Joe Torre speaking at the Hall of Fame..things could have changed had he taken over the Cubs in 84...would he have had an opportunity in NY?
Awesome job by Frank Thomas...
Without getting in to the "roids" Frank Thomas with a direct message to young people....." no shortcuts."
Frank Thomas with a very emotional and heart felt speech. Excellent job.
Congrats to Tony Larussa, Greg Maddux and Frank Thomas..covered all 3 from the moment they arrived in Chicago. True Hall of Famers.
Love's got a lot weighing on his mind, but I'm sure part of his decision is the fact he doesn't want to answer questions about his future.
U.S. figures to play small lineups, anyway, in Spain. Have Curry, Lillard, Harden, Kyrie, Beal, Rose, Wall, DeRozan, Klay Thompson in camp.
Hard to feel too worried about Team USA. Still have Anthony Davis, Cousins, Drummond avail, plus KD & Paul George could easily play the 4.
Guess Kevin Love wants to focus all his attention on getting traded. No time for Team USA.
3. How many times will Thibs slam his own head on the bleachers watching Harden's defense? Fear that beard!
Top three storylines in Vegas this week for Team USA: 1. Rose's return, 2. What happened to all the stretch-4s? and finally ....
That's why I have Rose penciled in as making it. Note - penciled in, not in pen.
Here's how all five PGs should rank: 1. Curry, 2. Lillard, 3. Rose, 4. Wall, 5. Irving. What helps Rose is Curry can also play SG.
You don't think Steph Curry, Kyrie Irving, D.Lillard and John Wall want to make Rose feel broken down? The bigger question is can they?
Because of the rust he was still working through in those 10 games, we haven't seen the "real'' Rose in 2 yrs, 2 months, 29 days. Good luck!
...DRose has played 10 NBA games in the last 820 days. The Bulls have paid him $6.8 million per win over that time.
Here's a reality check for those that feel DRose can just roll the basketball out and even make Team USA .....
Best big man left up front for Team USA? Boogie! Be afraid rest of the world, be very afraid!
Admit it KLove, you're afraid of the "Thibodeau stare."
K. Love is now withdrawing from Team USA because of his "current status,'' according to ESPN.
Tom Thibodeau - A - Nobody works the back channels like Thibs.
.... but until he gets it and has an understanding of what the new NBA is about, let's give DRose an I (Incomplete).
DRose - Oh DRose - well, he answered the phone when Gasol called him. Worked out for Melo and spoke to him. ....
At age 30 this year and seeing the window can close, Noah's thirst for a title was on full display.
A+ - J. Noah - Did it all on the court and off. Started courting Melo in Feb, and never stopped. Flew out to LA to visit Gasol.
G Forman and John Paxson - A- - They swung for the fences, that's for sure. Quickly had Gasol as a Plan B, and drove up Love price for Cavs.
Bulls offseason recruiting grades now that Love has his heart set on Cleveland: Taj Gibson - B+ - Helped with Anthony Day and dinner.
Classic Noah, on this season's potential: "Even when we sucked, I always felt like we had championship aspirations."
Noah on Melo: "I can’t control where another man goes. If he feels like New York is the best position for him, I’m happy for him."
Noah on Gasol: "It’s very humbling to play with somebody who has won championships with his pedigree. He’s somebody I can really learn from"
Noah: "All this stuff we’re doing in the community gives me strength. It makes me feel like I’m playing for more than winning and losing."
Noah said his knee is "great" and the Bulls' offseason changes "make you want to work hard and be ready as possible for the season."
Sometimes the best move you make is the one you don't make ... or in this case, doesn't make you.
It wasn't for a lack of trying. They'll have 30 days to still try and shock the NBA world, but sounding like what LeBron wants, LeBron gets!
Bulls starting to get that feeling that they might again be first runner-up in a big offseason move. First Melo, and now Love.
Noah: "I'm happy for LeBron. He gets to go home; people are happy over there. I really hope we can kick his ass as many times as possible."
Joakim Noah is dunking at an event for his Noah's Arc Foundation promoting non-violence. So his knee seems good.
The lesson? Don't mess with Thibs!
Boozer disappears in the fourth quarter of games for the remainder of the season and playoffs, never to be heard from again.
...stats that show how bad Boozer is like an assassin carrying out a hit. But Thibs didn't see it? Just happened to have stats available.
Thibs is asked about it in pregame, and replies, "Well, what did he say? I didn't see it.'' Then Thibs start rambling off all the 4th qtr...
Best Boozer moment of the year: Booze complains about minutes at the end of morning shootaround, media goes into frenzy ....
B. Scott to coach the Lakers. C. Booze now has a coach to complain about for lack of fourth quarter minutes.
Tryout pool now consists of J. Harden and a bunch of role players named Curry, Durant, Love, Rose, etc....
Team USA officially announces John Wall is in the tryout pool, B. Griffin out. Starts Monday in Las Vegas .....
J. Noah announcing major public stand against gun violence. Guessing his 6-shooter celebration after hitting jumpers is retired for good.
USA Basketball makes John Wall's addition official. More PG competition for DRose at next week's minicamp.
