Joakim Noah is a man of animation. News flash. But he had to get it from somewhere, right?
On Sunday, we got an insight into Noah’s fiery nature when his father Yannick Noah was interviewed by Lisa Salters during Sunday’s matchup between the Heat and Bulls. He was a willing participant, answering questions while keeping his eye on the game. Slowly, the steadiness of his replies lessened, until he finally lost it and stopped the interview to give the Bulls, rather his son, a standing ovation.
It stands simply as one of the better moments of the year.
