Noah ranks among All-Stars

According to a list released Thursday by the NBA, center Joakim Noah's jersey (#13) is the 14th best-selling jersey in Europe among all NBA players.

"I think it's cool to have one of the best-selling jersey in Europe," Noah said. "I'm also European, so I think that helps a little."

Noah was born in New York but spent much of his childhood in France before attending high school and college in the United States. His father, of course, is France tennis star (turned musician) Yannick Noah.

Kobe Bryant has the best-selling jersey in Europe followed by Kevin Garnett, Pau Gasol, LeBron James and Dwyane Wade.

Noah is one of my favorite Bulls now. Last year was his coming out party. They guy has heart and played it out down the stretch last year. It doesn't matter who you are, all that matters is what you do in the heat of battle. His metal was tested and found not wanting. The guy has heart, soul and swagger. I will be rooting for him this year. I like what he said about Ben Gordon on Comcast. Takes stones to speak the truth, especially in that climate.
