WAOK (Atlanta) —  Chicago Bulls center Joakim Noah apologized after his team’s 96-85 Game Three loss to the Miami Heat for allegedly hurling a gay slur towards a fan during the game.  Noah was substituted out after picking up his second foul midway through the first quarter. 

Upon reaching the bench he turned and shouted at a nearby fan.  Noah later apologized, saying he was “caught up in the joakim noah ugly Oh No!!! Another NBA Player Does What???moment” and “said some things that I shouldn’t have said.”  He said he expects to be fined for the comment. 

 In April, Los Angeles Lakers guard Kobe Bryant was fined $100-thousand dollars for shouting a gay slur at referee Bennie Adams during a game against the Spurs. 

Noah scored just one point to go with five rebounds in the Game Three loss. 

Miami has a 2-1 lead in the Eastern Conference Finals series.
