The Chicago Bulls Joakim Noah apologized for the comments he made to a fan list night when he called a fan a gay slur starting with an "F" but never said that he said it, but apologized for his comments.
The NBA fined Noah $50,000, half what they fined Kobe Bryant for calling a ref the same word the game before the last game of the season.
GLADD thinks the NBA has a gay problem and they might be right. Although the players say it is just smack talk on the court, it is done in front of thousands of people in person and millions of people at home.
The NBA is in the middle of running a campaign asking people on the courts at home not to say the word, but the NBA's players are not following suit.
Was Noah's fine just right and should he have been suspended for games as well?-Dr.FB
Diagnosis: NBA Action It's "F"antastic
Looks like it is not just Kobe Bryant that has a gay slur problem when angry at NBA Games. Joakim Noah may have just done the same thing tonight at an NBA playoff game as his Chicago Bulls took on the Miami Heat.
Check out the short clip above as TNT cameras caught Noah but this time, the commentators did not..comment about it.
Since Kobe's comment, there have been several anti-gay slur ads run by the NBA. Noah is not in them.
So did Noah yell a gay slur and will he get fined and suspended since this is the playoffs?-Dr.FB
Diagnosis: What Would Kobe Do?
Kobe Bryant, who was seen mouthing the words "F'ng F*g" at Tuesdays game after a referee called him for a technical foul, was fined $100,000 by the NBA. Kobe is appealing the fine. No suspension was given to Bryant. Not sure if it is now the regular season is over and it's playoffs, or they never intended on suspending him.
Kobe is already appealing the fine and saying it is "standard protocol" and added: "The concern that I have is for those that follow what I say ... look to me as a role model .. for them not to take what was said as a message of hate or a license to degrade ... or to embarrass or tease ... because that's something I don't wanna see have happen." ""It's OK to be who you are."
He made those comments earlier to ESPN radio. He did not apologize for saying it however.
P.S. we posted the photo above to show this is not the "gayest" think Kobe has ever done.
Should Kobe apologize for his verbal outburst?-Dr.FB
Diagnosis: The Doc NEVER Uses The "N" Word Or That "F" Word
Kobe Bryant had a bad night last night. He got his 14th technical foul with 1 game in the season to play. If he gets 15, he is suspended. His frustration is no excuse for what he MIGHT have said after picking up that 14th technical foul. It seems he may have thrown a homophobic gay slur out there.
The camera was on Kobe and.....if you are a good lip reader....it does look like he said "What? F'n F*g!" This is lip-reading..not the sound of it. There are ways around this...and believe me, Kobe and a team of peeps are trying to find a way around this. I bet you this is one thing they just may try....
I have a feeling Kobe will say he was saying something in Italian because he was mad. Kobe does speak Italian along with several other languages. He will say he has gay friends and he would never disrespect them like that. Shoot, he may even throw in he has a gay uncle or something.
Just because someone appears to have mouthed the words, doesn't mean they did. It looks like it...but...did he?

Spotted at the Laker opening game where they got their championship rings were Sacha Baron Cohen, Lamar Odom's wife Khloe Kardashian, Kim Kardashian, couple Heather Locklear and Jack Wagner, Charlize Theron, Andy Garcia, and....Jack Nicholson. The Lakers beat the Clippers...by 7 points?......
Gwen Stefani and family were picking out pumpkins at a pumpkin patch......
Larry Johnson, who plays for the NFL team Kansas City Chiefs, was suspended indefintly for dropping a gay slur on Twitter and then again at reporters. He has since apologized but the team has asked him not to report to practice at all this week......
Andre Agassi autobio says he used Meth in 97. No wonder he went bald & lost Brooke Shields.....
Perez Hilton, the gossip blogger, issued a sorry letter thru his website yesterday. Is he being sincere?
While saying he is sorry, he brings up the repeated blows to his head and saying violence is not the answer. Saying that he was standing up for himself instead of just walking away. How is calling another man a f***** standing up for yourself.
He does say whatever money he wins will be donated to charity. Too bad he is not going to win any money.
Anyway, Wil I Am and the Black Eyed Peas are going about their business and trying to make most of their time while in Paris, France. We heard they went to a comedy club last night. Good for them.
I mean after all this crap, they at least deserve a laugh.-Dr.FB
What do you think of the apology?
