Good for him!! He is a young man, and he is enjoying his life. You can't expect all the athlete to stay in the gym 24/7 and cooped up in their homes playing video games all day.

Everyone needs breaks away from their jobs, and he is doing just that.

Live it up Noah, but get back in the gym and work out just as hard as you enjoy the beach!

In regards to the porcelain twins, well...

Noah is young, rich, and doesn't have to worry about recession or unemployment like the rest of us.

Looks like he's smoking a cannibis cigarette in one of the photos.

That's what you kids call it, isn't it?

He's never had to worry about day to day crap. Who wants to bet we don't see any pictures of Noah anywhere near a gym this off season?? Just like Curry and Chandler, he won't put in the extra effort until his free agent season.

"YOU" doesn't make $5-7 million a year and get whooped on by opposing players who are decidedly shorter but heavier and stronger. Dre is not a reason for the Bulls' mediocrity; Noah might be. You'd have to be in diapers not to know that he is out-muscled by everyone under the hoop. Wouldn't hurt if he converted a little of his body mass into toned muscle and bulked up in the shoulders. In the meantime, let's make plans on how we can get Paxson active on the trading market and in the draft. They need to move players and go after guys like Sheed, Iguodola, K-Mart, Horford, Stoijakovic, Kirlenko and other pieces. Need to find a guard and tweener or two with some height, and quickness (who can make steals) on the defensive end...can Sefolosha and Nocioni be pried away from OK and Sac.?

If Joakim Noah has a nice lady friend to go to the beach with, and have a few beers etc. fine. But, if you have to hang with what surely looks like a boob job stripper/groupie type, that's actually pretty lame. And if you repeatedly get reported on enjoying drinking etc. in public, that's really kind of lame too. Scottie and Michael may have liked booze and a variety of ladies over the years, but you still had them developing strength, looking like muscular athletic machines/studs, and everyone knew they worked their butts every summer/off-season both in the weight room and on the basketball court. I'm afraid so far the same can not be said of Noah, and for his previous troubles, I would say this is not a good sign. Will see if there are many more of these type of sightings in Joakim's future. Meanwhile, he better come back in the fall with the muscle he needs to add to his legs/lower half in particular, and a little more on top with more definition/reps like Scottie, Horace and other toned NBA athletes who are definitely serious about their work.

Well good for Noah. I hope he's enjoying himself, but i also hope it's going to be a short vacation. Noah basically promised everyone, that he intended to work hard this off season to make improvements in his game. And, there also can be no excuses whatsoever; if he were to come into camp this next season as out of shape as he did last year. For a player to not be able to play for more than 4 minute stretches, two months into the season as Noah did last year is unexcusable.

So Joakim, enjoy yourself with your lady another couple of weeks, then keep your promise, and improve your game. Fans look for you to come back next year and elevate your play into being one of the top 10 centers in the NBA.

Hey wonder genius...
How did Noah grab so many rebounds if he was constantly being pushed around?
Just admit that you don't have a clue on judging talent in this league and Noah has put egg all over your face.

So, the guy is photographed one day on the beach drinking a beer with a hot chick and now he won't work hard over the offseason and become a problem?
Are you one of those god-fearing Christians I keep hearing about?
Noah was the ONE Bulls' player that came to play EVERY game last season.
Maybe YOU should get in the gym so that YOU can have a hot chick and a beer and YOU won't be SO concerned about others that have no interest in your life whatsoever.

You guys need to calm down. The playoffs aren't even over with! Jesus christ, no player who got eliminated is training right now. Everyone takes at LEAST a month off. Noah is going to IMG Academy this off-season. You don't think they're gonna put him through weight training?? He's going to work on his game but you also need to take time off so your body heals. He's on vacation with his GF. Give me a break. This isn't even news first off! I'm fully confident Noah will come back next year as a better player.
