No, not Yannick. Joakim.Yannick Noah's Son, Joakim?

In case you have never heard of him – and if you live outside of the U.S. and France you probably haven’t – Yannick’s ponytailed son, Joakim, is part of the NCAA March Madness basketball tournament. Noah is a 6-foot-11 sophomore for the Florida Gators, which thanks to his strong play just won the SEC tournament Sunday.

Noah, who averaged nearly 14 poitns a game with seven rebounds, is considered one of the top collegiate basketball players in the country and a possible future NBA star.

According to Patrick Ewing: “I never had any idea how good he would be. When he got older, he’d always play ball with my son, and even then I didn’t know he’d be like he is now. I still can’t believe he’s 7-feet.”

For those interested in a peak, Noah and his Florida Gators will be playing there opening round game Thursday around 2:30pm ET on CBS. Check it out. I’m sure he’ll be wearing something a bit more fitting than what you see here. I hope…
