Joakim Noah moves into ninth place in most games played as a Bull

SHARE Joakim Noah moves into ninth place in most games played as a Bull

When he checked into tonight’s game against the Spurs, Joakim Noah moved into ninth place on the Bulls’ all-time list of games played.

Noah passed former Bulls big man Dave Corzine with his 557 game. If he plays in 36 more games with Chicago, Noah will also pass Bob Love, whose No. 10 hangs from the rafters at the United Center.

Michael Jordan tops the list with 930 games with the Bulls, followed by fellow Hall-of-Famer Scottie Pippen (856), Kirk Hinrich (720), Jerry Sloan (696), John Paxson (645), Luol Deng (637) and Tom Boerwinkle (635).

A first-round pick in 2007, Noah averaged 68 games per season entering this season. He posted his best season in 2013-14, when he averaged 12.6 points, 11.3 rebounds, was named first-team All-NBA and Defensive Player of the Year.

But Noah has struggled while coming off the bench under new coach Fred Hoiberg. He’s averaging a career-low 2.7 points through 13 games this season.

Playing in the final year of his contract, this season could be Noah’s last in Chicago.
