I am looking at Noah play today and I am looking at his profile in NBA.com.
Noah is ONLY 6'11" which is the same height as guess who ? Amir Johnson
Noah is ONLY born in 1985 and Amir is Born in 1987 so Amir is two year younger.
Both guys came to the league same size, both kinda skinny for their position.
Noah embraced his role as a defensive stopper, a Center in this league, spent time in the gym, added to his bulk, focused on the work and ...
Now, he is one of the most prominent Centers in the league.
On the Other hand, Amir is NOT willing to accept the challenge that my team needs a center and I have the height and the supposed defensive ability. Why don't I take it as a challenge to myself and say, Hey, I am going to spent time in the gym and Bulk up and be that defensive Stopper that you need ?? There is no Need for you to bring in a guy, I am your GUY. I am your leader ( he claims he wants to be the leader) and hence, I will work hard to address your need because at the end of the day:
What does Noah have that I DON'T ???
But too bad. Amir does not say these things but asks for a Center to Bail him out.
He asks for a big brother to fight his battles while he creates a youtube video !!!
