Joakim Noah Gives An Assist to Father Pfleger

The Chicago Bulls center will lend a hand in Father Michael Pfleger's "Balling For Peace" tournament

"The games will be played on Sept. 22 at St. Sabina Church from 12 p.m. to 6 p.m. and some of Chicago’s most well known athletes will lend their support including Chicago Bulls star Joakim Noah. Quentin Richardson of the Orlando Magic is also scheduled to be in attendance along with former NBA great, Isiah Thomas, who Pfleger says helped bring this event together....“This is not a one time Saturday thing,” Pfleger said. “It’s a beginning and then we can continue to work for peace. There is only one thing that matters for me: stop the shootings. Whatever it takes, whatever we can try, I’m with it. Stop the shooting.”
