We get it: Joakim Noah doesn't like Cleveland

Apr 20, 2010, 12:39 PM EDT

The best part of the interview is when Noah rips Cleveland again, you can hear the Chicago-based writers start to laugh, but then realize the locals don’t find it so funny.

For the record, it is funny. Sorry Cleveland.

    Hey, Rose and Noah are just newcomers dude. how long did it take MJ to get rings? 5 years, Kobe 3 or 4 years? Lebron well… I don’t know, its always shoulda woulda coulda, let’s see that baby cry again this season when Orlando beats em up again…
    Come next year if the Bulls get Amare, let’s see them play in the playoffs again…

    Noah was funny in his deliver. I lived in Cleveland and worked at a museum, funny how many people from out of town I would meet when at work considering no one vacations in Cleveland.

    Lol actually it took MJ 7 years to win his first ring you idiot (not 5), the same year that lebron is in now.
    But winning a ring is a team achievement, so years dont really matter. If lebron had a really good team around him (i.e. one that would make the playoffs wihtout him), he’d win the championship every other year. For instance, imagine lebron on the Orlando Magic, instead of vince carter. It would be over before it started.

    Apart from Pippen, there was no othe rplayer on that team who was really that good and they would most likely not have made the playoffs withoutJordan. Yet Michael won 6 rings with this subpar team.
    Lebron has no excuse. He is a great ATHLETE but an OVERATED basketball player- not very wel skilled, average free throw shooter which is important at the end of games in the playoffs. Also, he only started to get a fairly consistent outside shot just last year plus started to play better defense last year.
    Contrary to what everyone thinks, even though he has a good enough supporting cast this year that he could win if he was as good as people think he is, he is still not goint to win. The cvas will be taken out either by the Celtics or the Orlando Magic.
    By the way, Noah is funny.

    cleveland is and always will be the devil’s outhouse;
    people only stop there on their way to their destination to relieve themselves;
    people only go there in shackles;
    and what is so hilariously funny is that cleveland actually tries to call itself a city in the only state in the union that doesn’t have one;
    seriously, if you saw “downtown” cleveland, you’d fall down in pain of laughter–you could hide the entire “skyline” of cleveland between any two piers of Myrtle Beach, or two turns of Darlington Speedway;
    and what is worse, cincinnati, youngstown and dayton are all bigger “downtown”, not to mention Parkersburg (any Parkersburg, take your pick), Hooterville, Stamps, Arkansas, Ita Bena, and Mayberry;
    and Mayberry has more culture and Hooterville more night life, too;
    when the NBA held its all-star game here, it was the only time the NBA darlings couldn’t find any trouble to get into…or convince any trouble to come along with them!
    cleveland is too small to even have a ghetto, though it claims to;
    true, there are clearly economically impoverished pockets, but a real down-to-earth decimated region (though efforts are being made to create one)–please!
    where but in cleveland would you find people apathetic enough to let a wife-beating-impotent mayor spend $50,000 on a three-story high “free stamp” at the top of the hill from the R&RHOF, and try pass it off as “art”?
    who but LeBron, who is little more than the second coming of George Gervin, have you ever heard come originally from cleveland–and admit it?
    and to any society maven, male or female, who dredges up a list of character actors and grade B singers, congratulations…by the time you’re done (say, 3 minutes or so) your paragraph will be bigger than cleveland!
