Here is the entire list of ways that Joakim Noah‘s first year as a New York Knick has been a success:
- He got paid a lot of money.
- He exercised and worked hard, which is always a good thing.
- Since he lives in New York he probably got dinner at some good restaurants.
That’s, uh, kind of it.
After signing a four-year, $72 million deal to join the Knicks this past offseason, Noah’s first year in New York has left a lot to be desired. He played in 46 games, averaging 5.0 points and 8.7 rebounds in 22.1 minutes a night, while his inaugural season in the Big Apple came to an end due to knee surgery. He also violated the league’s anti-drug policy, which led to a suspension.
