Great post, but that's makes sense both in reality and in fantasy,
As long as Pau is on the court he still is their unquestioned 1B or 1A option, despite being 35 years old, last season and this year Eurobasket were proof that he still has enough in the tank.
As for Noah, I strongly believe that he shouldn't play more than 28 mins per game, cause his body can't handle it, simple as that.
Is there loyalty in the NBA? I do believe that both Rose and Noah are the embodiement of what a bulls player should be, but they might not be there next season (I hope they stay).
What happened to Rose is more or less the same thing that happened to Tracy McGrady, his body gave on him, and he's still fighting against it, instead of figuring out how to redifine his game.
With that said I beleive that this season Niko will do great things, and he's not that bad defensively either.
