Yannick Noah is too busy cheering for this sideline interview

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?
