With his comments about Cleveland, Joakim Noah unwittingly altered the free agent class of this summer. Upon hearing Noah say his team’s town “sucks” and there’s nothing to do there, LeBron James had second thoughts about his decision to sign with the “The Clev” in the offseason.
“You know, he’s got a point. There really isn’t much to do here,” James said. The superstar swingman scored 40 points, adding eight rebounds and eight assists as the Cavs took a 2-0 series lead Monday night with a 112-102 win.
“I mean, what do we have here? The Rock ‘n’ roll Hall of Fame? Man, that place kind of sucks,” said LeBron. “I wonder if they have any museums in New York. Yeah, New York would be fun … ”
Noah took advantage of the down time in this godforsaken city, leading the Bulls with 25 points and 13 boards.
“Yeah, I practiced for 36 straight hours,” he said. “I mean, what else was I gonna do? Go to the Rock ‘n” Roll Hall of Fame? I hear that place sucks.”
