Joakim Noah: Knocking off LeBron James, Cavs is ‘the goal’
The New York Knicks continue to aim high as their training camp opens up.
On Wednesday, it was Joakim Noah’s turn to be bullish, stating that the aim for the team this year was to dethrone LeBron James and the Cleveland Cavaliers.
“That’s definitely the goal,” Noah said, via Frank Isola of the New York Daily News. “It’s definitely not an easy task but that has to be the mindset. We all know what it is. Right now it goes through him. It goes through that guy. For us to get to where we want to get to we have to beat that guy.”
The Knicks are definitely feeling bold. Another new member of the team has gone as far as to call them a “super-team.” These proclamations are being met with a lot of skepticism, as is the notion that they’ll be able to get through the Cavaliers, but we’ll see how their confidence translates to games.
