Joakim Noah’s animated on-court play gets a cartoon GIF treatment

Noah gets animated.

In this series of GIFs, Edser brilliantly captures the Bulls center’s idiosyncrasies, from Noah’s gangly reach and byzantine free-throw form all the way up to his frizzed out shock of hair. 

Here, Joakim Noah plays offense:
