Chicago Bulls Notes, Quotes 2009-03-29
--Center Joakim Noah may end up losing some playing time with the arrival of veteran Brad Miller. But Noah has been quick to admit that he's gained plenty of knowledge from the former Sacramento Kings center. One demonstration came in the third quarter of Thursday's win over Miami, when Noah caught an inbounds pass and drove to the hoop for an uncontested dunk.

"I feel like I'm learning a lot from Brad," Noah said. "I faked a pass and got the dunk (against Miami). That was something that Brad does all the time, he always fakes the handoff. He's so slow, but he gets to the basket all the time. His craftiness is unbelievable because there's not a lot of players that play like Brad."

--The Bulls locker room has gotten louder and livelier this season with the addition of some new personalities. For years, most of the team's key players have been quiet and laid-back, such as Ben Gordon, Kirk Hinrich, Luol Deng and Ben Wallace. Newcomers Lindsey Hunter and Anthony Roberson can be loud, while Tyrus Thomas has perked up in his third NBA season.

"I don't feel like it's that much louder," Hinrich said. "The only difference probably is Lindsey's here now. He's the loudest."

Coming from the Detroit Pistons, Hunter is used to a loud locker room. The Pistons had a fair share of outgoing players, and the music was usually blaring.

"I just think a locker room should be like you're at home, it should be family," Hunter said. "Everybody should be relaxed. Everybody should feel a part of it. I guess that's my way of kind of welcoming the new guys coming in. You just make them feel a part of it right away."

QUOTE TO NOTE: "If I miss those shots, it's a totally different story. Sometimes you have to take chances. At that particular time, I was in a pretty good rhythm. The first one, when it left my hand, I knew I had a good chance of making it. The second one, it was 50-50." -- Forward John Salmons, on knocking down a pair of 3-pointers that saved the Bulls against Indiana on Saturday.
