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

Did Another NBA Player Yell A Gay Slur?

 

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?
