Watch: Yannick Noah Goes Crazy For Son Joakim’s Inspired Play
(CBS) It’s a pretty easy task to discern where Bulls All-Star center Joakim Noah gets his passion from.
During the second quarter of the Bulls’ 95-88 overtime win yesterday, ABC/ESPN sideline reporter Lisa Salters tracked down Noah’s father, Yannick, in the stands for an in-game interview. Yannick doesn’t get to attend to a lot of games, Joakim said later, so when he saw a splendid sequence of play by his son, he didn’t worry about the interview being conducted.
Yannick did what any parent would probably do: He went crazy. Check it out below for yourself. Noah led the Bulls to the victory with 20 points, 12 rebounds, seven assists and five blocks.
