Joakim Noah is a great high-post passing big man. A jump shooter, he is not.
During the New York Knicks matchup with the Detroit Pistons on Tuesday night, the center from Hell’s Kitchen got caught a little to far away from the hoop with not a lot of options.
Thanks to a stagnant offensive set by the Knicks, Noah was forced to go up with the ball from about 19 feet. It went about how you would think given his two-handed push-style jumper.
Tobias Harris at least saw Noah was in trouble, and caught the airball before it could hit the floor. Superteam!
