NBA Rumors: Chicago Bulls head coach Tom Thibodeau doesn’t think Joakim Noah will be suspended


The Chicago Bulls lost Joakim Noah last night when their animated center got a little too animated and ended up hurling expletives at the Sacramento Kings. Noah was ejected and now some are calling for the center to be suspended for his actions, something that fans around the NBA seem to always be railing against.

While fans and even the league may want to see Noah suspended for his actions on Monday night, Bulls head coach tom Thibodeau doesn’t think that is going to happen.

Per Nick Fridell of ESPNChicago.com:

Bulls coach Tom Thibodeau said he didn’t think Noah would receive a suspension as a result of the outburst.

Noah said he wasn’t sure whether a fine or suspension would come his way.

A fine is much more likely for Noah if anything even happens at all. Still, Noah’s frustrations are starting to show in a very negative way, and fans can only hope that this was a one-off outburst that won’t happen again.
