Chicago Bulls C Joakim Noah Working With Kareem Abdul-Jabbar

Chicago Bulls center Joakim Noah has been working with Kareem Abdul-Jabbar over the summer, according to the Boston Globe (via CSN Chicago's Mark Strotman), and the Hall Of Famer expects Noah's post game to improve this season.

Noah's scoring output decreased to 10.2 points per game last season, after it had gone up in each of the previous four. That will have to improve this season, as leading scorer Derrick Rose remains sidelined for an indefinite amount of time. In addition, Noah can expect to see more minutes this season after the Bulls replaced Omer Asik with the much-older Nazr Mohammed.

Abdul-Jabbar has worked with some other big-name centers recently, as he is currently assisting Los Angeles Lakers big man Dwight Howard. Before that, Abdul-Jabbar spent five years mentoring former Lakers, and current Philadelphia 76ers, center Andrew Bynum.
