If you think Toronto mayor Rob Ford had a bad week…

Well, the Bulls’ next week is looking like it may have some cracks in it as well.

Lost Wednesday in the excitement of Derrick Rose’s first game in the United Center in 18 months was those half dozen naked streakers spelling out “Bulls” during timeouts.

And first round draft pick Tony Snell having a breakout night with a dozen points that included a pair of three pointers, four assists and three steals.

Joakim Noah isn’t quiet much. He’s not Nate Robinson loud. But there’s often some sort of cacophony rising around Noah, as there was almost throughout Saturday’s Bulls opening night exhibition game win in Indianapolis.

That’s why you keep coming back to the NBA.

For days like Saturday when the Bulls and Brooklyn Nets gave basketball a gift, a fabulous, breathtaking, wondrous and thrilling 142-134 Bulls triple overtime victory.

Perhaps not so wonderful for the shocked Nets, who gave up a 14-point lead with less than three minutes left in regulation and head home for …

They were laughing at Joakim Noah in Philadelphia last year, laughing as sports fans do in Philadelphia over someone else’s hardship.
