The inconsistent play — and playing time — of Joakim Noah and Carlos Boozer has underscored one of Tom Thibodeau's biggest consistencies.

Unlike former Bulls coach Scott Skiles, who once famously answered "Jump" when asked how Eddy Curry could rebound better, Thibodeau refuses to bury players publicly.

It's why Thibodeau keeps supporting Noah and Boozer with his public comments, even while sitting them for the entire fourth quarter in consecutive games.
