Joakim Noah needs to realize he is not a quality human being and in no way shape or form dominates, Brian Scalbrine belittles him.

Kingyosef:

Please be more specific on what Joakim Noah is "bad" at. He was good enough to be drafted 9th in the 2007 NBA draft that was better than 51 other players who did get drafted. There are many more that did not get drafted. He is averaging a point a minute, playing an average of 12 minutes. He has played in 24 games too. Dave Thorpe of Scouts Inc., says he was the victim of a bad rotation. He also is ranked 13th in rookies this year, but since the new coach he has scored 0 (DNP), 4, 0 (played only 4 minutes), 17 (in 18 minutes)points.

Also, when the Bulls drafted him, there was controversy that they drafted him as the best player available rather that the best player for their team.

Explain what he is BAD at.

He is not good at getting haircuts

He never knows when to keep his mouth shut

he should have played tennis like his dad, because no one on the bulls likes him

even scott skiles told him too shut up

Glen Davis blocked the hell out of him early this year

He is also a rather unatractive person

Basically, whatever he does, he will never ever dominate at life.

"He is not good at getting haircuts" -kingyosef

HOw can you be bad at getting haircuts? Maybe that's the way he likes it. Just because you think it looks bad, why is he all the sudden bad at haircuts?

"He never knows when to keep his mouth shut
even scott skiles told him too shut up" -Kingyosef

That is just a rookie thing. MOst rookies Will say what ever they want to say. A god example is Kellen Winslow Jr. When he was a new player in the NFL he was wild and said what he wanted to. Now he has matured and doesn't speak out. Also, show me proof scott skiles told him to shut up. It shows alot when he was just fired a couple days ago.

"he should have played tennis like his dad, because no one on the bulls likes him"

Once again, where is the proof. Maybe he wasn't good at tennis. He is an amazing basketball player.

"Glen Davis blocked the hell out of him early this year"- King

So? I play basketball and I get blocked. It doesn't mean I'm bad at it. It is just apart of the game.

I still don't know what he is "bad at".

I think you are taking this debate too seriously, but i will try to be serious too.

Joakim Noah
ppg: 4.4
RPG: 3.10
apg: 0.9

in comparison to the average rookie stats for a player pick ninth who spent 4 years in college that is sub-par. He also lacks the athletiscm of an NBA forward, as well as the quickness. His shot is also very akward. He was drafted that high becuase of the fact that his team went won the NCAA championships twice, which has historically pushed players higher on the draft board, regardless of NBA potential. Basketball analysts have often called him overated.

I'm sorry if I took this debate a little too serious.

You can not look at stats, because he's a rookie. The Bulls didn't need him, but they drafted him anyways. He is behind Ben Wallace on the dept chart for Centers. As I quoted before, Dave Thorpe of Scouts Inc., says he was the victim of a bad rotation. You can't look at numbers just yet. Report this Argument
