In an interview with ESPN’s Ian Begley, Joakim Noah is already getting praised for his intensity from his new teammate Kristaps Porzingis.
“He brings that good energy. He brings that spirit, you know? So from the first opportunity that we got to talk, I fell in love with [Joakim Noah’s intensity],” Porzingis said of Noah. The 31-year old center is known for his high-energy on the floor and his intensity always seems to rub off on his teammates. Last year for the Bulls, Noah averaged 4.3 points while grabbing 8.8 rebounds and dishing out 3.8 assists per game. Noah’s a high-risk, low-reward player and should be viewed as a flier pick on draft day.
