K.C Johnson's post on Chicago Bulls | Latest updates on Sulia
Noah broke out his playful quote on Thibodeau: "Like I’ve said for a long time, it’s a dictatorship out here."
Noah was responding to questions about Thibodeau riding his starters down the stretch of Saturday's victory over the Bucks.
"Sometimes I wish I could coach," Noah said, smiling. "I always tell Thibs how I feel. Sometimes he listens to me. Sometimes he doesn’t. Sometimes he gives me that look like, ‘Are you kidding me? Are you really telling me what to do?’ Thibs is pretty stubborn."
Carlos Boozer, who has sat for multiple fourth quarters this season, went a little stronger on finishing Saturday's game.
"You never know when you’re going to be out there or if you’re going to go back in the fourth quarter," he said. "Me and (Richard Hamilton) talked about it before the game, just be aggressive when you’re out there and see what happens. That’s kind of been our mentality the last few games. It was going great tonight.
"We want to be out there every fourth quarter. But that’s Thibs’ decision. This is his show. He runs it. He puts out there who he wants out there and we just go with the flow."
The Bulls have been controversy-free since Thibodeau took over. It will be intriguing to monitor that moving forward.
