Joakim Noah Happy LeBron’s Going Home But Wants to Kick His Ass

Chicago Bulls v Golden State Warriors

Joakim Noah is not a fan of LeBron James.

Personally, I am ok with that since I think things have become too buddy-buddy between stars these days. Noah was asked about LeBron returning to Cleveland and had this to say:

“I’m happy for LeBron James,” Noah said Friday. “He gets to go home. People are happy over there. But I really hope that we can kick his ass as many times as possible.”

That is about as honest an answer as you will get. It wasn’t exactly disrespectful but it got his point across. Joakim actually made these comments at an event by his Noah’s Arc Foundation. It’s nice to hear an athlete not give the simple and plain answer and take a little bit of a shot.

Who else is ready for Bulls vs Cavs?
