Is there any more unique father-son pairing in sports than Yannick and Joakim Noah? One a top ranked tennis champion and best-selling recording artist. The other an awkward, yet energetic big man who has gown into an All-Star NBA player.
On Sunday during Heat-Bulls on ABC in Chicago, sideline reporter Lisa Salters tried to get an interview with the proud papa watching in the stands. However, Yannick Noah could barely string a thought together for Salters because he was too busy cheering his son and giving him a standing ovation. Yes, it's a great moment and there are few things better than a father supporting his son. But from Salters' standpoint, who would have thought Yannick Noah would give you less words in an interview than Gregg Popovich?
