Meet the New Joakim Noah

I’m not sure who this new guy is, but I like him a lot more than his predecessor: “As with the rare jump shot he made Saturday, Joakim Noah is taking his reduced playing time in stride. Since the Bulls traded for center Brad Miller on Feb.19, Noah has been more likely to clock 28 to 32 minutes than the 38 to 42 he often got before Miller arrived from Sacramento. ‘I’m feeling comfortable out there playing,’ Noah said after practice Monday. ‘Whatever it takes to win games, that’s all that matters. If that means sacrificing some minutes for the team when there’s a lineup that’s playing better, then so be it. If we’re playing better when I’m on the court, then of course I want to be out there. But sometimes you have to sacrifice for the team.’”

    It’s wierd that playing Noah 38 to 42 minutes per didn’t turn out well. I may have to re-evaluate my opinions on basketball.

    I’m completely surprised he was playing that many minutes before.

    Noah doesn’t need hoops anyway, he can always fall back on his reggae tennis roots if he has to.
