The NBA has fined Chicago Bulls center Joakim Noah $50,000 for being caught on camera yelling "F*ck you faggot" to a fan seated behind him during last night's 96-85 playoff defeat to Miami.
Last month, Kobe Bryant was fined $100,000 for yelling the same slur to a referee. The league says Bryant’s fine was higher "because it included a sanction for verbally abusing" a game official. "Noah apologized again for the remark on Monday and says he will accept the consequences," reports the Sun Times.
