This will probably be the "Big Talker" of the Internets today. Chicago Bulls center Joakim Noah, not known for holding back his thoughts, appears, on video to say some curse words, including a slur that Kobe Bryant got fined for using just a month or two ago.
Noah had just picked up his second foul in Sunday nights game and was headed for an early seat on the bench, he grabs some water and a towel and appears to gesture towards someone behind him and say something along the lines of #$@%! you...faggot.
Now, it's somewhat difficult to tell what the last word was, but you can pretty clearly tell what the 1st two were, the TNT Sports shotgun mic did it's job, too well.
He later said he apologized to the fan directly, though it probably will not help him avoid a substantial fine. Our pals on SportsCenter play the apology and talk about it:
PM UPDATE: From the NBA their ownselves...
Chicago Bulls forward Joakim Noah has been fined $50,000 for using a derogatory and offensive term from the bench during the first quarter of the Bulls’ 96-85 loss to the Miami Heat last night in Game 3 of the Eastern Conference Finals.
