This will probably go down as one of my top 5 favorite basketball videos of the year.

ESPN’s Lisa Salters was trying to interview Joakim’s father, tennis great Yannick Noah, during the Bulls/Heat game on Sunday but ended up capturing a very proud Dad celebrating the play of his son. ┬áThe joyous screams came after Joakim played some great defense on LeBron James and then grabbed an offensive board before getting fouled.

Noah finished with 20 points, 12 rebounds, 7 assists and 5 blocks in an overtime victory over the Heat.  LeBron was just 8 for 23 from the field for 17 points.
