Joakim Noah and Fabrice Gautier, Episode 3: Injuries, Life Changes and Joining the Clippers
Joakim Noah has had five operations in the last three years. In 2017, after another shoulder surgery, he started to doubt his NBA future at 32 years old. Now, he says he's found "peace and happiness" with the Los Angeles Clippers, who made their debut on Wednesday night inside the NBA bubble in Orlando, with Joakim starting at center in the team's win.
For Episode 3 of our "Real Talk" series, Joakim opened up to his longtime physical therapist and European osteopath Fabrice Gautier about his recent journey, before the former Defensive Player of the Year departed to Florida.
