A veteran basketball player who formerly played for the Chicago Bulls has decided to hang it up. Joakim Noah, after a 13 year long career in professional basketball, 9 of which he spent playing with the Bulls, decided to retire from the sport.

Joakim is 36 year old at the time of the decision being made, which is still a young age. The report came from Shars Charania of The Atlantic:

Noah had a great run with the Bulls from 2008 to 2015. His average score points were 9.7, along with 11 rebounds, 2.8 assists, 1.8 blocks. He also stole over 60 post-season games with Chicago, which only provides testament to his ability.

Not being able to keep healthy and in good shape led to him opting for an early retirement, but whenever he had to work his magic on the court, he was one of the best players in the entire NBA to make use of the center position lucratively.

In the year 2014, he finished fourth in the race for the MVP of the year, and won The Defensive Player of The Year Award. While he had two short playthroughs with the Memphis Grizzlies and the Clippers, Chicago Bulls brought him back home in 2020. He wishes to retire as a member of the Bulls, given his contribution to their wins throughout the years.
