It would be weird if Joakim Noah (or any other player worth his weight) didn’t believe he was going win the big one. Noah though is just a little more brash in the way he goes about things.
A few minutes after a tough Game 6 loss to the Nets, Joakim was already fired up for Game 7.
From the Chicago Tribune:
“I’m ready to play. I want to go play right now. That’s my emotions,” a fired-up Noah said afterward. “We’re a team of fighters. We keep getting punched in the face but we fight back. I’m proud of this team. We’re going to go into a hostile environment in Brooklyn and we’re going to win.”
And then later, this gem: “It’s going to take all of us sticking together through all kinds of adversity. This has been a real hard year. But I’m really proud of this team. We’re ready to kick some ass.”
