Joakim Noah showed he isn't afraid to stand up and defend his friend and fellow Chicago athlete.
In an interview with ESPN's Michele Steele, Noah talked about his personal life, from his favorite vacation spots, to his hair, to the number of languages he speaks. And he didn't hesitate to share his thoughts on Patrick Kane's issues with the media after a trip to Madison, Wisc. that revealed some questionable photos.
"I gotta show my guy some love -- Pat Kane," Noah said. "That's my dude. You gotta show him love. You guys are on him -- leave my guy alone.
"He's a young guy and he made you guys happy when he won the championship... and now you guys see a couple pictures on the Internet and you guys are all over him.
"What happens in the club stays in the club, Chicago. Stop taking pictures, trying to criminalize your players and stuff like that. Pat Kane, you my guy -- shout out to Patrick Kane."
