If you want to know how Joakim Noah would act if the Bulls could beat the Heat, a team Noah says he hates, in the playoffs, then watch the Chicago player’s reaction after scoring a goal in last month’s Steve Nash’s 8-on-8 charity soccer game billed as the “The Showdown in Chinatown” with other players and celebs including Nash’s “Step Brother” Baron Davis.

The teams were split up with the Americans on one side and the international athletes, like Marco Belinelli, on the other.  Thanks to Noah and his game winning goal, USA came out with a win and we had the opportunity to watch Noah celebrate like Bulls fans wish they could see more often in the playoffs.  Noah was also named MVP of the match.

For those hooper/soccer fans that want to see more of Nash on the soccer field than make sure you check out the 2013 Steve Nash Foundation Showdown this Sunday at the Salvation Army Red Shield Youth and Community Center in LA.  Expected players include Klay Thompson (Golden State Warriors), Jared Dudley (Los Angeles Clippers), Jeremy Lin (Houston Rockets), Robbie Rogers (LA Galaxy), Robbie Keane (FA Ireland/LA Galaxy), Carlo Cudicini (LA Galaxy), Martin Zuniga (former goalkeeper for Mexican National team), Kyle Martino (retired MLS and Team USA), John O’Brien (retired MLS and Team USA) AND many more! You can read more about it at
