Joakim Noah will be playing in France for the National team for the summer., during the lockout. What do you think about this? Overall, I think it's a questionable decision of him being such a big part of a team like the Bulls, I remember how worried the Spurs were when Tony Parker played in France was were worried that he'd get injured.

LOL. I think you misunderstand this, Mo.

Joakim Noah is playing for the French NATIONAL team in the Euro Championship. It even says in the first paragraph of the article:

"No, not in the Deron Williams way of signing a contract to play professionally. According to ESPN Chicago, Noah is planning to play for Team France in the Euro Championship this August and September."

He's not signing with a team to play with for the season...he's just representing his country at the World Championships, just like Manu Ginobili does with Argentina, or Tony Parker does with France, or Dirk does with Germany. It really isn't a big deal.

I realized what he was doing, I just worded it oddly, lol.

Typical Ben, assuming he has more knowledge than someone else.

I don't think teams should ever hold a player from playing for his country even in a lockout situation. The lockout feelings will likely not set in until October when games would be missed.
