Damn .... I thought his teammates benched him for just being ugly. I didn't realize that he got into a heated confrontation with one of the Bulls assistants.
Anyhow, welcome to the pro's rook.

Noah was inactive for the Philadelphia game for internal disciplinary reasons, but the players told interim coach Jim Boylan one game was not enough.
"We have a chance to salvage this season and we just need everybody on the page," said Bulls veteran guard Adrian Griffin.
"They just told me what I did was unacceptable and I'm just going to move on from here," Noah said. "I've just got to accept it. What do you want me to say? I've just got to move on. There's nothing I can do about it."
