Noah also talked about the Bulls' summer, which so far has included missing out on free agent Carmelo Anthony and successfully signing former Lakers power forward Pau Gasol.
"I'm really excited," Noah said. "I think Gar (Forman) and (John Paxson) and everybody did a real good job. I'm really, really excited about the Bulls. It just makes you want to work hard and be as ready as possible for the upcoming season."
Noah also shared an entertaining comment about LeBron James' return to Cleveland.
"Good for LeBron," Noah said. "I'm happy for LeBron James. He gets to go home. People are happy over there. But I really hope that we can kick his (butt) as many times as possible."
