Chicago Bulls center Joakim Noah is known for his defense and hustle on the basketball court, but once the buzzer sounds it seems that he turns into the world's nicest man, as seen in this postgame video of him chatting up a shy fan.
Noah and the girl seem to have a history as he comments on how much she has grown since he first saw her and notes that she is still shy. He then coaxes her out of her shell enough to get a high five to celebrate the team's victory over the Detroit Pistons on Monday.
The reigning defensive player of the year had 13 points and 14 rebounds in the Bulls win, but this is definitely his finest highlight.
