Joakim Noah goes ‘anti-violent’ on Nene … for now

SHARE Joakim Noah goes ‘anti-violent’ on Nene … for now

Nene started the hate. Noah ended it.

Before the game, Nene had talked about how much he hated the Bulls. During the game, he exhibited it, slapping Joakim Noah across the face and drawing a flagrant 1 foul.

Everyone thought Noah would retaliate. But the chill Bulls center, who had just released an anti-violence video hours before the game, puts his words into practice and let it go. For now.

‘‘You know” Noah said, “just trying to put out a video a couple of hours before the game about nonviolence and trying to teach these kids about the big picture. So it wouldn’t have been a good look, not today. You know what I mean? Not today.’’

Here is the anti-violence video Noah was talking about:
