Re: Joakim Noah Is Just Like Mark Madsen
How about he is a combination of Varejo/Camby/Diaw and Madsen?
Noah looks to be a unique player IMO. I can't think of too many players with his size, athleticism, energy and skills.
However I do think he may never be anything more than a novelty and 6th man type player. His offensive game is woeful, he often plays out of control and he looks to be naturally and eternally thin.
It's too bad he does not have more of his father's build and grace. Yannick was known for his excitement as well as grace/stlye on the tennis court. His son's style is flat out ugly and he looks anorexic.
BTW...Another thing Diaw and Noah have in common is French ancestory.
