LeBron James attracts many pests, but Joakim Noah might be the best player to ever beef with him

  • Published: 09 October 2019
  • The Chicago Bulls were really good for a little while there. With Joakim Noah, Derrick Rose, and Luol Deng leading the way, the Bulls had some elite seasons ... like, better than whichever team LeBron James was on at the time. But in every instance, Noah's Bulls ran into LeBron on one of his many runs to the NBA Finals.

    Like so many other LeBron victims, Noah developed a beef with The King. What made his unique? Well, for one, he was a much better player in his prime than some other irritants. And besides that, Noah's personality is distinct: Annoying, yet sensitive; prone to dishing out disrespect, but also liable to react when disrespected. All that adds up to several playoff runs full of grappling, bickering, and trash-talking the city of Cleveland. It's a pretty good beef.

They won 45 games in 2012 and 48 in ‘12. These two teams were the hardest working teams I’ve ever seen and were never out of any games because of their incredible defense. They also were severely undermanned and beat the Nets, a team that had Deron Williams, Joe Johnson, Gerald Wallace, etc in 2012. These teams were awesome to watch, they kept losing players, but Thibodeau always pulled them together. I disagree sir.
