NBA star shows football skills with sublime finish

Published 10 Comments

NBA superstar Joakim Noah might be known for his skills on the court, but it’s his efforts on the football pitch that is currently gaining attention on the web.

The Chicago Bulls centre is known for being a passionate player, with the 6ft 11 former Florida Gator often appearing on the edge.

And, that was certainly the case during a charity game for the Steve Nash Foundation, with Noah losing his mind after a wonderful low strike.

The big-man received the ball from a throw-in, and initially struggled to bring it under control. However, a few touches later and he’d shifted the ball to the right, before unleashed a lovely low finish that curled into the bottom corner.

His celebration was even better than the finish, with Noah wheeling away with one arm aloft. A quick hug with the keeper followed, before continuing a run around the outside of the pitch.

Noah’s strike proved to be decisive for Team USA against the Rest of the World, making the score 8-7 to the stars & stripes. They went on to win the match 9-7, with Noah being named the game’s MVP.

He surely deserved the award for his celebration alone, and you can watch the brilliant video below…
