08:05 AM ET 10.04 | With Tuesday's preseason opener looming, Bulls fans are getting that much closer to seeing Kareem Abdul-Jabbar's influence on Joakim Noah. [Abdul-Jabbar] reached out to Noah's camp this offseason and spent two weeks offering his Hall of Fame skills for tutelage in Los Angeles. "It was very humbling," Noah said. "I feel a lot more polished offensively." ... This experience couldn't take place until Noah's gruesomely sprained left ankle fully healed. Despite warming up before the season-ending Game 6 of the Bulls-76ers playoff series, Noah admitted he had no chance of playing because he didn't feel 100 percent until "about a month ago." He added that "ankle rehab is something I think I will have to do the rest of my career."
