Default Noah fined $50,000

shouldve learned from the kobe incident.....

Quote:
New York, NY (Sports Network) - The National Basketball Association on Monday fined Chicago Bulls forward Joakim Noah $50,000 for inappropriate comments.

Noah used a derogatory and offensive term from the bench during the first quarter of Sunday's 96-85 loss to the Miami Heat in Game 3 of the Eastern Conference finals.

While the NBA's official release declined to elaborate on the nature of the term, the Chicago Tribune reported that it was an anti-gay slur.

Chicago's Taj Gibson told the paper that Noah engaged with a fan sitting near the Bulls' bench because that fan targeted Noah "relentlessly" with verbal abuse, and a crack from the fan about Noah's mother was what apparently set him off.

"I lost my cool," Noah said in a statement posted on the Bulls' website. "People who know me know I'm an open-minded guy. I'm not here to hurt anybody's feelings. I'm just here to help win a basketball game."

The Tribune also revealed that Noah was fined less than Lakers star Kobe Bryant's $100,000 penalty because Bryant's harangue was directed towards a game official.

The only reason Noah and Kobe got fined is because it was caught on camera. If it wasn't caught on camera then nothing would of happened. This type of stuff happens alot .. its just not shown on camera.

I don't understand the lower amount.

As for it being about being caught on camera, well considering these guys play among throngs of cameras, they should have some idea that anything can and will be caught on camera. In this instance he was yelling it at a fan, which is a further degree of stupidity. Really - he got off pretty light.

Mike Breen just said Kobe was fined more because it was directed at an NBA official

They need to set some sort of insane fine as a precedent so players watch their tongues.

players should watch their language no doubt, but there also needs to be something done about the fans. they can't just say whatever they want either....

If that happened here and security knew of the fan's behavior, he would have likely been tossed, if he continued after being warned. I once saw a guy in the upper deck get a stern warning for calling Loren Woods a fucking pylon.

Noah should have gotten somebody to handle it properly, and maybe there should be a league-wide policy of how to do so.
