New team, same Joakim Noah.

The outspoken center, who spent the first nine years of his career playing for the Bulls, is getting set to begin his time with the New York Knicks on Tuesday. Unfortunately, the Knicks’ first game is in Cleveland. And Noah hates Cleveland.

Noah continued to talk trash about Cleveland on Tuesday, a place he’s called “all factories.”

“It’s not a vacation spot,” Noah said on Tuesday, doubling down on the comments he made years ago.

Unfortunately for Joakim, the Knicks will travel back to Cleveland in February.
