Joakim Noah Very Interested In Worlds

Some earlier reports said Joakim Noah has decided to skip World Championships in Turkey to rest his foot after a difficult season full of injuries. Noah explained his situation to the French newspaper L’Equipe: “’I talked about the situation with (French coach) Vincent Collet and the coaches of the French team. What’s sure is that I really want to play with that group and go to the Worlds,’ he said. ‘But I explained the situation. I’ve to negotiate a contract extension this summer. I’m in the same situation than Tony Parker. Contracts like this only happen once in a lifetime. This will change everything for me and I hope to sign it quickly and join the Bleus as soon as I can. I’m still very interested in playing for the French team.’”

    He knows the worlds will be a better vacation and more cool than Cleveland.

    I’m not about to tell anyone they shouldn’t play for their country, but as a Bulls fan, I kinda hope he takes the summer off.

    Do you guys remember how Slamonline used to be? It used to be a gray page with a bunch of links to other stories, and occasionally Lang would bless us with some original work when time permitted. Now, instead of just linking to original stories, they’re chopping them down into the important parts and posting them for us. Whoever posted this article linked to the original source. If you don’t like how it’s done here, feel free to spend hours scouring the Net for the originals. I appreciate that it’s all condensed here, in one spot, for me to read. This format is a massive time-saver. Thanks SLAM. Keep up the good work.
