Pacers Granger calls Noah a dirty player

Quote:
The Indiana Pacers were labeled "goons," "hoodlums" and "thugs" by Chicago Bulls fans for their aggressive play during teams' first-round NBA playoff series.

It turns out, Pacers forward Danny Granger thought the Bulls were taking cheap shots.

Granger had to be restrained from going after Bulls center Joakim Noah as the teams exchanged handshakes on the court at the end of the Bulls' series-ending 116-89 win.

Granger accused Noah of playing dirty throughout the game, taking cheap shots at Pacers, including forward Josh McRoberts, who was ejected in the third quarter.

Granger was in the hallway outside the locker room using expletives to describe Noah's play.

"Everybody saw what Josh did and he got ejected," Granger said. "Nobody caught what happened first. It's always the second man. (Noah) was playing dirty the whole game. My teammates got caught with it and nothing happened."

McRoberts was ejected in the final seconds of the third quarter for throwing an elbow at Noah. The former Carmel High School standout said he was retaliating for an "elbow to his throat" from the Bulls center.

"We were on the side by ourselves, and he took a good swing at my throat," McRoberts said. "I was trying to defend myself and protect myself. I've got to be a man out there. It's not the way I would want to end the season, though."

Granger is so impulsive. He wants to strangle Barbosa, he thinks Turks smells like dead donkeys... The guy just can't shut up.

People are going to take elbows, if Noah can turn that into ejections, Kudos.

Saying a Center (or PF) is dirty, is basically adding zero's to the guys pay check and years to his contract. Case in point his teammate Jeff Foster is making 6.65 this year, and has had tenure in Indy for his entire career.

Imagine him and the Toronto crowd? Toronto loves it when players show emotion towards the crowd, and Noah does it like every possession.

Meh Indiana plays dirty too. What can you do? If you can stand the physical presence of Noah down low, then get out of the paint.

I think you guys are forgetting the time when Noah called out KG for being dirty. Which he notoriously is. Whats the big difference if Granger called Noah dirty?

You basically answered it. KG IS a dick and IS dirty. Noah is nowhere near as bad as KG, better yet I don't find him to really be dirty. Dude plays his ass off. Imagine if he wasn't a raging pothead? Lol

Granger is such a baby.
he's always complaining... this made me laugh: "Granger had to be restrained from going after Bulls center Joakim Noah as the teams exchanged handshakes on the court at the end of the Bulls' series-ending 116-89 win."

give me a break. Granger is such a fake tough guy. he is always saying that he would do something... but he never does, nor does he have the balls to do anything. he always talks.
cry me a river you idiot.

Noah plays hard and gets under guy's skin with his hustle and fearlessness. i love his game.

Hardly an elbow? He threw his entire arm at Roses face. If he connected it would have caused some big damage.

his arm I agree.... it was more of a shove attempt than an elbow.... in my opinion.....

Granger is right up there with Iguodala on my "most overrated player in the league" list.

Shut up and play.
