During an interview with Hot 97, Martin took shots at Phil Jackson for his failures in the front office, and then went into a full rant about Noah (starting at 15:17):
Martin: “Picking talent? That ain’t [Jackson’s] strong suit, as you can tell. The man gave Joakim Noah $70 million. Boy can’t hit his ass with both hands.”
Now you going after Joakim Noah…
Martin: “I’m going to continue to go after Joakim Noah. That boy sucks.”
Martin even made fun of Noah’s horribly botched free throw last season (and made a pretty spot-on impression of Noah’s face).

Martin: “I’ve never shot a ball and made that face. I’ve been playing basketball for a long time. What basketball player you know that done that?” […]
(17:06) “I’ll play him for his contract. Play him for his contract. Right now, off the couch.” […]
“[Stephen Jackson and I] look at people’s skills, and we feel we should still be playing, and we can play. Just opportunities. And you give a guy like that that kind of money for nothing man.
“If it ain’t me. If could have been somebody else for the Knicks.”
