Jeff Hanisch/US PresswireJoakim Noah is averaging a career-best 14 points per game this season.
MILWAUKEE -- Chicago Bulls center Joakim Noah was posed the question whether he currently is the best center in the Eastern Conference following the Bulls’ win over the Milwaukee Bucks on Saturday.
Noah, first, repeated the question. “Am I the best center in the East?” He smiled and laughed. He repeated the question again. “Am I the best center in the East?”
He then began talking, stopped and went on. “I don’t ... I don’t know, man. You tell me, tell me.”
His teammate Luol Deng stood a few feet from Noah and said, “(Heck), yeah. He’s the best center in the East, and I’m not saying that because he’s standing right here.”
