Confidence is usually a good thing for professional athletes, and many never have a lack of it. Some athletes are borderline cocky, but hey, I guess you have to be if you’re one of the best in the world at what you do.
If you won’t toot your own horn in the NBA, there’s usually a teammate that will do it for you, as Joakim Noah has found out.
Via the Sun Times:
He doesn’t have to say it. Teammates will say it for him. Loudly.
“Hell yeah,” Luol Deng stated emphatically when asked if Joakim Noah was the best center in the Eastern Conference.
It may sound a little strange at first, but is Deng really wrong? With Dwight Howard in the Western Conference and Andrew Bynum on the sidelines, title for best center in the East is up for grabs. And Joakim Noah has looked very good so far this year.
With Derrick Rose injured, Noah is averaging 14 points, 10 rebounds, 4 assists, 2 blocks, and 1 steal per game. Talk about filling up the stat sheet.
I’m sure Andrew Bynum will have something to say about this when he gets back. But, for now, Deng might be right.
