Joakim Noah barely had a minute to breathe when he sat in the lobby of the Westin Hotel on Times Square.
Then came the handshakes and a few kids who brought basketballs, which Noah happily signed.
Noah was going to meet with a Nike representative Wednesday night, then planned a long night with friends and teammates Al Horford and Corey Brewer.
“I sleep on weekends,” Noah said.
Noah said he plans to spend some quiet time with his family Thursday and a trip to the stylist to do some last-minute work on his hair before draft night.
Said Noah: “We’re going to do it pretty big, like the national championship.”
