Anyone worried about the Bulls getting overconfident after wresting home-court advantage from the Celtics need only listen to Joakim Noah.
"We won one game in a seven-game series, and people are acting like it's the biggest deal in the world," Noah said Sunday. "It feels good. And we set a tone. But we didn't accomplish anything yet."
In fact, Noah said he's curious to see how the Bulls respond to the "little bit of success" they had. Giving Noah confidence is the fact that the Bulls didn't back down from Boston's physical play.
"It was important to show we weren't going to back down," he said. "Nobody was rattled. People thought we would be. I'm just trying to be physical. My role on the team is to rebound."

Noah is turning into a leader guys. I really not sure I want to give up on Noah or Tyrus in any type of trade, even for Bosh. It's fun watching these guys grow together, and don't u think a certain Chi'town native might have been thinkin the same. Especially after watching his teammates deflate under the playoff pressure.
U think we switch the focus from frontcourt to backcourt in 2010?
Just a thought.
