I really tried. I had multiple times, many times, where I envisioned winning a championship here. It never happened, so Ive got to take (those) visions and take them to New York.MOVING ONNoah said he wasnt surprised management broke up the Bulls core following last season.I think it was time for a change, he said. I look back on (last season) and I was definitely frustrated. There was definitely a lot of adversity going on there. Now I can look back at it and see where went wrong. Its not about blaming one person. Everybody in that locker room is good people. Its just (stuff) happens.We didnt make the playoffs. Everybody was disappointed. It was a team that had high expectations.UP NEXTKnicks: Host Utah on Sunday.
