Noah, although probably a good guy, is not much of a basketball player. That's just fact. Waste of a pick.

What are you talking about? What swagger? No where in the article is swagger discussed.

Noah reflects Billy D., another punk kid that will be unemployed in 3 years.

Not only did I read the article, I have read several articles about Joakim Noah and have been a fan of his since he was since he was in high school. He played a summer with a league in NY and regained his "swagger" and if you don't understand that Hardline, it is a cultural thing and, get this, there is more than one in our diverse United States. I'm am a United States citizen and have a graduate level education. You are so quick to judge, any one who knows anything about Noah knew what I was talking about. This is a diverse nation, full of diverse cultures, whether you like it or not so get used to it!

You must have misunderstood my comments. I don't have an issue with the words you used or how you used them. I embrace our diversity an am happy that you have acheived graduate level education.

The article was about Noah being fined and benched. It then detailed the reasons why. Its in the first paragraph. Swagger has nothing to do with that. Swagger, as I understand it is an attitude you have about yourself.

I don't see any reason either of us should be upset with each other's opinion(s). Can't two US citizens have a calm, cool, and collected discussion without being offended.

By the way, I apologize the other poster made such a rude response to your original post.

the kid needs to learn to respect his coaches, teammates, organization that is paying him millions, and his city. If not, put concrete shoes on him and drop him in lake michigan.

Is Noah an agreeable person? Is his company sought by others? It seems to me that he is a person who is pretty hard to get along with. I hope that he shapes up some day.

You got it Chicago Expatriate, it definitely gave me a swagger that's mine to keep :-) Paul, Didn't mean to mix of the replies but it wasn't too hard to sort out, thanks. The venom being slung at Noah is hard for me to take. A whole of people did not make an NBA team and get two college championships, Noah did so that says something is great about this the young man. Like the article said, he is being schooled. Life has a way of doing that to everyone and he'll be alright. Rook wants to kill him, DrDunkenstein is putting him in a statistic where he never had been. Noah's family is rich and royal, he'll be fine and will have options. Damn, the Bulls were able to get Rodman to pull it together, Noah should be a piece of cake. I'm pulling for you Noah...take your rest and come back strong...Peace

You're right Paul, I didn't turn on anyone, not even you Hardliner, I'm just saying what I want to say. Noah used the word swagger in past articles to describe how he attained his mindset to play his game which helped win two college champions. My use of swagger has to do with Noah himself who is the subject of the article. Just some encouragement for the young man...If somehow a personal attack is seen in my post, it is not meant to be. I'm just don't like being judged and don't like to see others judged. Peace.
