No matter how old you get, your parents will still view you as their baby.

Just ask Joakim Noah's dad, Yannick, who put on a display of fantastic emotion while watching his son play against the Miami Heat during a quick in-game interview with ESPN's Lisa Salters.

After seeing Joakim get a defensive stop on LeBron James and then draw a foul on the other end, Yannick began shouting with joy at the top of his lungs. He proceeded to give his son a standing ovation.

He later celebrated his son's defense by doing the classic Dikembe Mutombo finger wag.
