WATCH: Joakim Noah’s Father, Yannick, is Awesome

Get ready to smile.

During the heated matchup between Chicago Bulls vs. Miami Heat on Sunday afternoon, ESPN on ABC reporter Lisa Salters was in the crowd interviewing Yannick Noah, the very proud father of Bulls All-Star Joakim Noah. In the midst of the interview, Noah stopped LeBron James from scoring on the defensive end before running down the floor, pulling down the offensive rebound and drawing the foul on the other side of the court. Yannick became too focused on the game to continue to the interview, and began wildly cheering for his son.

The Heat currently lead the Bulls 82-80 with just over three minutes left in regulation. Noah has 16 points, seven rebounds, four assists and three blocks.

Update: The Bulls defeated the Heat 95-88 in overtime. Noah finished with the double-double, dropping 20 points, grabbing 12 boards while adding seven assists and five blocks.
