In the wake of the shootings in Newtown, Bulls center Joakim Noah will be doing away with his signature celebration.

Noah has become known for pulling out and shooting imaginary guns after nailing a jump shot. He has said he takes a lot of pride in his ritual.

"When people talk about celebration, I just feel like, you're not going to out-celebrate me," Noah said earlier this year.

But the Bulls center told K.C. Johnson of the Chicago Tribune that he will be shelving the celebration for the foreseeable future.

"It's just not worth it," said Noah, who has tweeted repeatedly about the shooting.

Knowing Noah, it won't be long before he has another celebration.
