Noah faced McEnroe on the court last week, except that it wasn't that Noah, that McEnroe or even that kind of court. In a high school basketball game in New York City, Brooklyn's Poly Prep, featuring 6' 10" star center Joakim Noah, son of Yannick, scored a 60-30 win over Manhattan's Trinity School, featuring 6'1" reserve forward Kevin McEnroe, son of John. "Hey, man, good to finally meet you," Joakim, 17 told Kevin, 16, after the game. "Heard a lot about you," Kevin replied. Joakim, who scored 21 points, is a Division I prospect but doesn't play tennis. He says the time he beat his father—who is divorced from Joakim's mother and lives in Paris—in a game of 21 was "the greatest feeling of my life." Kevin is a three-sport athlete at Trinity, where he plays soccer and his best sport, tennis. "He's a good kid who doesn't get caught up in trying to please me," says John, who missed the game but often sees Kevin play. ("He
doesn't talk to the refs," Kevin swears.) John says Yannick, whom he beat in doubles in the '82 Davis Cup, was "one of the cooler guys on tour. I'm psyched to see Joakim [at the Feb. 14 rematch]."
