Bulls’ Noah didn’t feel good about the Heat winning another title
Chicago Bulls fiery big man Joakim Noah isn’t shy about expressing his feelings on and off the court. Love him or hate him, Noah has charisma and his hustle gene is up there with the best in the NBA. Joakim Noah isn’t too fond of the Miami Heat, he isn’t buddy buddy with them after the season ends, and he apparently wasn’t too happy seeing the Heat win their second straight championship.
Via Pro Basketball Talk:
“At first I said I didn’t care, but I was lying to myself,” Noah told For The Win at The Steve Nash Foundation Showdown in New York City Wednesday night. “I was driving in my car and I just didn’t feel good about it at all after they won. Well you know what? It’s going to be extra motivation to work extra hard in the offseason and I feel like we’ll be the team that beats them next year.”
I’m not sure if Noah’s feeling stem from the Bulls coming up short in their title quest or the fact that he seems to genuinely dislike the Heat. With a healthy Derrick Rose returning to the Bulls next season, they look like the front runners to legitimately challenge Miami in the Eastern Conference. For now, we’ll just watch the off-season drama unfold and let these two teams settle it on the court in 2014.
