It's all fun and games until it's your cheerleader he's winking at or your coach he grabs the ball from or your team who's walking off the court while he's standing on the scorer's table doing the Gator chomp. Boo hoo. Everyone loves a champion...so long as they don't win too much. Is there a greater reason to be hated? Go Jo! Go Gators!

Great young man? This guy is a knob! I mean seriously, do you have to jump up and down and carry on like a monkey every friggin time you do something minor like score a bucket or block a shot? Just play the game you little clown. I know your father didnt act like such a tool every time he served an ace or won a set, i know you were raised better than that. You and people like Sean Williams and Jared Dudley from Boston College give hoops a bad name with your constant bad a%^ attitude. Play the game, like your teammates. Play the game and leave your classless bullcrap behind. The reason peoople hate you is because you are an obnoxious, bad attitude nimrod. Grow up, or your NBA days will be oh so brief and you will soon be living off of your successful fathers trust fund.

The article doesn't surprise me. The reference to the commments from UCLA students seems commonplace in games with high tension. It reminds me of high school in Arizona. The reality is that there is still racial tension against African Americans. In Arizona, I played pickup ball in one game where a white student lambasted an African American basketball player as having a "small brain." Such attitudes are very common in Tucson, AZ or Phoenix. I know Patrick Ewing used to have evil fans throw bananas at him during games. The fans did that to imply that he was a sub-human. But the UCLA cheerleaders will probably get a taste of their own medicine in the end when they are old. I wouldn't be surprised if their husbands dump them for someone younger by the year 2028 (i.e. First Wive's Club). Noah is too strong to be intimidated.

You've got some serious issues my friend... Joakim's awesome. He's not your average little basketball thug. He's a man who cares about the game. If he didn't, he would have left his team for the draft last season. That's classy in my eyes. That's what makes college ball so awesome... players with so much heart like Joakim Noah.

I agree, Noah is a pile of crap- How can you be a fan of that guy?

Joakim Noah is a very unselfish team player. Others just wish he was on their team with such enthusiasm and zeal for the game. I have thoroughly enjoyed his skills, drive and unending desire to learn, succeed and win.
He is a GREAT GATOR!

I bet that this time next year, Joakim will have more money than his father ever did.

It doesn't matter who I am a fan of. But if Noah played for the team I like, there is still no way I could root for him.

You my friend, need to research his father a little more. He has been a successful business man for twice as long as he was a successful tennis player. And with all his investments and such, it will take little noah 3 or 4 nba contracts to equal ole dad. And judging from more talented big men ive seen leap to the nba that are flat out struggling rite now, he will be beyond lucky to even get a 2nd nba deal. Maybe he will get paid ok to play in europe, maybe he should take dads tennis racket out of the garage and see if he has a hidden talent, but rest assured joakims nba days will be brief and brutal. He can act like a jagoff overseas. Im just happy my days of watching this a$% clown are numbered.

And the fact that he didnt i find even funnier. Last year he was essentially guaranteed a 1st rd draft choice with a guaranteed 3 yr deal. Not necessarily the case this year. Lots of talented big men coming out, not to mention some great guards, joakim will be sitting around till the last minute very nervous on draft day im sure. Why cant we have articles on the more talented classier gators like taureen green?

He won't make it in the NBA. He cares more about his team. He cares more about winning the game than personal stats. He plays offense and defense. He plays with heart. He won't make it in the NBA.

Noah is nothing but a liberal, elitist, snobbish turd. He claims that he is sooooooo social conscious, but what has he done for society besides play basketball? Wow, nice contribution there buddy. If your so upset about the Katrina victims than go spend a month in New Orleans and do something about it!!!! It is an honor to be invited to the White House, regardless of your political beliefs. He is just another big phony. Good thing he plays for the Gators because no one else would embrace that turd.
