Have you ever wondered who Joakim Noah's three favorite Chicago athletes are? Well, thanks to the video above (fast forward to 1:00 in), we now know that his top three shakes out like this:

1. A.J. Pierzynski
2. Patrick Kane
3. Patrick Kane

And Kane takes the number two and three spots with a bullet, as Noah goes on to vehemently defend Kaner and his rakish ways, all the while referring to him as "my dude."

Noah's support of Kane may not be a surprising development. But someone with a platform has gotta tell the world, "What happens in the club, stays in the club."
