Chicago Bulls star Joakim Noah has been the driving force behind a surprise and sustained play-off push in the last few weeks, with his passion and drive explained by a courtside interview appearance from father Yannick last weekend.

Former French Open winner Yannick Noah was courtside to watch his son produce a typically spirited display in a 95-88 overtime win over defending champions Miami Heat on Saturday, struggling to keep his emotions in check.

Noah junior was superb on Sunday night, but his dad pretty much stole the show when ESPN attempted to interview him courtside.

As the Bulls kept LeBron James and co. in check Joakim's father was in full flow, snubbing a helpless reporter to focus his energy on an intense battle.

Check out Noah's enjoyable interview in a video provided by the NBA's official YouTube channel at the top of the page.
