Joakim Noah had another incredible performance against the Miami Heat yesterday and it seems the rivalry only brings out the best in him.
Throughout the game he made several key plays, especially down the stretch that led the Bulls to a comeback victory. His heart and relentless hustle are what sets him apart from other NBA stars and the fans at the United Center were loving it. Showing their support for their All Star, the crowd erupted with MVP chants several times last night in honor of his standout performance.
Following the game he was asked about his spectacular play and what emotions were evoked upon hearing fans serenade him with the chants, to which he responded:“I don’t like it. No, I don’t like it. Our MVP is not playing. We have one MVP, and that’s Derrick Rose. And, it’s not about MVPs, it’s about rings, and one day I hope that we can get one here.”
That’s incredible! Not only does this guy give it his all every night, but he’s modest too. A lot of players can learn a thing or two from him!
I dropped the ball. That’s a double entendre, huh? I actually dropped the ball and I dropped the ball on my team. I had it. That’s a great play and I give a lot of credit to Jimmy.
Kyle Lowry has been stepping up big for the Toronto Raptors all season and tonight he did it again. Finishing with a triple double, he led the way to an important 111-104 victory over the Minnesota Timberwolves.
