Bulls' Joakim Noah Has Close Encounter With John Elway ... In A Steam Room

No, we are not making this up. Reporters were joking around with the Bulls' Joakim Noah after practice today and he was telling them how the team became closer-knit during their long road trip and by spending Thanksgiving together.

And then he began talking about his encounter with Broncos Hall of Fame quarterback John Elway in a steam room in the team hotel, presumably while the Bulls were in Denver last weekend. His descriptions of the "meeting" -- it really wasn't one because Noah said he never said a word to Elway -- included "kind of weird, but it's a true story," "a weird moment, kind of awkward," "I was going to say something, but figured he just wants to spend some time alone," and "it was just me and him in there."

Watch the video, from Fred Mitchell of the Chicago Tribune. The Elway comments begin about 1:00 in.
