Chicago Bulls center Joakim Noah is one of the best defenders in the NBA — in fact, last season he was honored as the NBA’s best defender with the Defensive Player of the Year award. Tonight against Oklahoma City, his defensive prowess was on display as usual, particularly in the game’s final seconds. Immediately after teammate E’Twaun Moore hit a ridiculous three to put Chicago on top, Noah forced the Thunder’s Russell Westbrook out of bounds for a turnover, clinching the win for the Bulls.
Naturally, Noah was fired up, but not nearly as much as one portly man sitting courtside. This particular fellow nearly punched Noah in the face in excitement, but then opted for a really aggressive butt-slap and pat on the shoulder instead. Here’s a Vine via Ben Celestino:
That was perhaps the best moment of that fan’s life — he was on cloud nine, no doubt.
