Joakim Noah and LeBron James have long history of hatred

Chicago Bulls forward Joakim Noah and Cleveland Cavaliers forward LeBron James have history of disliking each other.

In 2009, Noah and James exchanged words because Noah was unhappy with James dancing on the sideline during the game. After that game, Noah made comments about James’ hometown of Cleveland:

During Game 2 of the 2013 NBA Playoffs, Noah and James received double technicals for exchanging words after an offensive foul by James.

It seems like every time James gets into trouble on the court, Noah is the one instigating the situation.

You would think James hates Noah, but by this 2014 interview, James had nothing but nice comments to say about him.

The feud between James and Noah probably will never stop, as long as, Noah keeps getting underneath James’ skin.

Noah said he’s excited to go to Cleveland to seek revenge against James and the Cleveland Cavaliers.

“I never thought I’d say this, but I’m very excited to go to Cleveland.”
