In the most bizarre photo from yesterday’s NBA draft, Joakim Noah–dressed and looking like Bozo the Clown–was chosen by the Chicago Bills as the Number 9 pick overall.
Noah is the son of former tennis great Yannick Noah, a Frenchman from the Cameroon, of whom I was a fan (though when my Dad took me to see him play Jimmy Connors in an exhibition match in the ’80s, I rooted for both, as Connors is one of my favorite athletes of all time).
