Joakim Noah's father, Yannick Noah, was in attendance for Sunday's game and was interviewed during the nationally-televised broadcast. The former French tennis champion and rock star shares his son's competitive nature and garnered a lot of attention for his animated reaction while the action occurred on the floor.
After the game, the Bulls' All-Star center discussed his famous father.
"I know that he’s happy right now. I can’t wait to see him and celebrate this win with him. I don’t get to see him a lot. My father’s always been there for me my whole life. Just to be able to share these moments with him — I know that he’s nervous during games and I always tell him, ‘Just drink a brewski. Just chill,'" he quipped. "But I know how he is, so I can’t wait to celebrate with him."
