Joakim Noah’s beef with LeBron isn’t over: ‘This s**t drove me nuts’

Noah says he still hasn’t worked things out with LeBron after beefing with him for almost a decade. The things he has said about the city of Cleveland were purely because of LeBron, Noah says.

The now-former player appeared on The OG’s podcast with Udonis Haslem and Mike Miller, where he was asked whether he has sorted things out with the current Los Angeles Lakers star. The French big man was honest.

“No, we haven’t,” he said. “This s**t is deep because still, to this day, it hits different. When I see somebody from Cleveland, they’re not happy about this s**t, ‘you’re disrespecting where I’m from’. Well, people have to understand that it had nothing to do with Cleveland. It had everything to do with that mother**er LeBron James.”

While being a member of the Chicago Bulls, Noah got eliminated from title contention by James four times – during the 2009-10, 2010-11, 2012-13, and 2014-15 seasons.

Overall, James holds a 16-5 playoff record against Noah, averaging 26.8 points, 8.9 rebounds, and 7.9 assists per game.

“Every year you’re losing, you know you have to get through him to get to the glory. That’s where it came from.

People are trying to make it, ‘yo, this our side.’ No, you’re looking at it wrong. This is competition. This is what you represent? I don’t give a f**k what you represent. This is Chicago Bulls. That’s all it was,” Noah said.

“LeBron was so good he was stunting on us. He was stunting on us! He [was] over there dancing before the game.

I’ve got Pete in my eyes, in my ears talking about, ‘You see this s**t, you see this s**t?’ I’m a competitor. I see this s**t. This s**t drove me f**ing nuts,” the former played admitted.

“So I had to let him know. But because [of] LeBron James and all that s**t, people think I hate [Cleveland]. There are other cities just as wack as Cleveland.”

Noah ended his career after the 2019-20 season, having played in only seven games for the Los Angeles Clippers.
