LeBron James attracts many pests, but Joakim Noah might be the best player to ever beef with him

  • Published: 09 October 2019
  • The Chicago Bulls were really good for a little while there. With Joakim Noah, Derrick Rose, and Luol Deng leading the way, the Bulls had some elite seasons ... like, better than whichever team LeBron James was on at the time. But in every instance, Noah's Bulls ran into LeBron on one of his many runs to the NBA Finals.

    Like so many other LeBron victims, Noah developed a beef with The King. What made his unique? Well, for one, he was a much better player in his prime than some other irritants. And besides that, Noah's personality is distinct: Annoying, yet sensitive; prone to dishing out disrespect, but also liable to react when disrespected. All that adds up to several playoff runs full of grappling, bickering, and trash-talking the city of Cleveland. It's a pretty good beef.

      You guys should do a beef history between Texas and Texas A&M or do Auburn and Alabama, those are the two best rivalries. Sadly UT and A&M don't play anymore though.

                                      Pau Gasol missed 2 games cuz of his hamstring after the 2-1 lead then never forget they let the Cavs get away with trying to call a timeout with they didnt have any that would've put the Bulls on the freethrow line to seal the win but nope lol not gone say it was rigged but u cant tell me it wasnt
