After the Chicago Bulls defeated the Charlotte Bobcats 103-97 on Saturday Night at the United Center, Bulls center Joakim Noah (who had a monster game of 19 points, 14 rebounds, and 3 blocks) finally decided to speak to the press about the trading of his former teammate Luol Deng:

Noah who often refers to his Bulls teammates as brothers, really did take it hard and just didn’t understand the trading of Deng. This was perhaps the most interesting thing he said:

In the business of professional sports changes happen all the time, and nothing is ever certain. Am I saying Noah is wrong for feeling this way? Not at all. Could you imagine bonding with someone for so long as a player (and in Noah’s case for most of his career) and having them ripped from your team. It really is tough! If it was hard on us fans then it will be difficult for the players as well. I think we often forget that these guys are human just like the rest of us!

But don’t cry for him, it seems like changes like this make players like Noah fight even harder:
