he Fred Hoiberg era begins tonight, as the Bulls take on the Cleveland Cavaliers in the regular season opener.

Joakim Noah is pumped. There are even rumors of an apperance by President Obama.

According to Dave McMenamin of ESPN,”President Barack Obama, perhaps the most famous Bulls fan in the world, is expected to be in attendance for Chicago’s season-opening game Tuesday against the Cavaliers.”

Hoiberg seems to be only mildly impressed with a potential presidential visit.
