Roy Hibbert: Not a big fan of Bulls center Joakim Noah
Pacers center doesn't like Bulls center Joakim Noah
Striking how honest Hibbert is during his news conference. Just admitted doesn't like Joakim Noah very much, but respects him as a player.— Michael Pointer (@michaelpointer) September 27, 2013
OK, so it's not shocking, right? Player doesn't like central division opposing center. And Noah rubs lots of folks the wrong way. It's just unusual for a player to outright say how he feels about another player, if it's negative. And it's the same kind of typical take from Hibbert who balances it with a reasonable admission of respect.
