Joakim Noah (knee) hopes that he's unlimited during training camp following arthroscopic surgery on his left knee on May 1. "It's going to be a grueling season," he said Monday. "This is the first time I've had surgery on my knee. I'm hoping there are no limitations."
Well, let's wake up and join reality, Noah. You're a marquee player coming off of knee surgery. Your team may let you start off however you want, but you'll be closely monitored to make sure you're not pushing yourself too hard. It's an 82 game season and they want you on the court for all of them. If that means forcing you to take it easy during the early part of the season, well, that's what they're going to do. Save the wishing and hoping for your birthday.
