In The News…Joakim Noah


Ahhh…Labor Day Weekend. A chance to break out the grill, barbecue, relax and enjoy spending time with family and friends. Like most people, I’m sure Joakim Noah did all of these things…and probably like some people did that weekend, he was also arrested. He was charged in Gainesville, FL with having an open container of “cognac” (probably Louis XIII because it’s $1,500/bottle and it’s also French) and marijuana posession (surprise, surprise). On top of that, he was also given two traffic tickets for no seat belt and driving on a suspended license. Wow…what a weekend!

He’s since been given 6mos probation and a $200 fine for the marijuana and open container charges in addition to having to pay $206 for the traffic tickets. In addition to that, under the NBA’s current CBA any player involved in a marijuana related issue will need to undergo counseling. This was a stupid thing to do; just because you’re a legend down there Joakim doesn’t mean that the rules don’t apply to you (even though you did get off with just a slap on the wrist). Oh well, just look on the bright side…at least your dad isn’t mad at you!
