Maybe that had to to with the fact that they were getting blown out by the Sacramento Kings, who were on a seven game losing streak and hold one of the worst records in the league. Or maybe he really thought he was getting a raw deal on calls. Regardless, Noah exploded after he was given a second technical foul and ejected from the game.
The former Florida product had to be restrained by members of the Chicago Bulls staff (and fellow players) as he launched multiple vulgarities towards the referees.
Wasting no time, the NBA leveled a $15,000 dollar fine on Noah this afternoon – though he will not be suspended for the outburst.
Bulls Joakim Noah Fined $15K for verbally abusing the officials upon his ejection during Bulls’ 99-70 loss to the Sacramento Kings on Feb. 3
If you weren’t lucky enough to see Noah unleashed last evening, you can watch that below.
Looks like the Bulls dodged a bullet on the suspension.
