Sometimes when you have nothing to nice to say, It’s better to just say nothing at all.
The Chicago Bulls were and still are a close knit group, so the huge trade of Luol Deng to the Cleveland Cavaliers shook everyone in the locker room up, including Joakim Noah.
Noah and Deng played seven seasons together, so the center of course is taking the trade especially hard. According to Teddy Greenstein of the Chicago Tribune, Noah has avoided making any public statements since the trade.
Another day, another media blow-off by Joakim Noah, who has not spoken publicly since the Bulls traded his friend and former teammate, Luol Deng, to Cleveland.
It was believed that he would address the media – all of four Chicago-based reporters – after the Bulls’ Friday morning shootaround at the Bradley Center. But Noah told a team official that he would remain mute.
It begs the question: Just how angry is Noah? And is his silent act hindering the Bulls in their effort to turn the page on the deal?
