04:33 PM ET 11.19 | In the eyes of several members of the Chicago Bulls, Portland Trail Blazers rookie point guard Damian Lillard violated an unwritten rule when he slammed home a dunk with 1.9 seconds remaining to punctuate a 102-94 victory. Bulls players such as Taj Gibson and Joakim Noah approached Lillard and expressed their displeasure. "I just told him he can't do that," Gibson said. "He didn't say anything. He was making a scene out of nothing. He made the layup and me and Joakim just addressed it, like, 'In the future, you have to be smarter. A lot of teams aren't going to let you do that.'" Lillard, for his part, said he "meant no disrespect."

Noah just got done firing up a three the other night with the game already decided. If Noah was peeved then he should get real. I love Noah so I hope that wasn't the case.

He is a rookie and the kid meant no harm about it. I thought the Bulls were the ones making a mountain out of a mole hill. Is it a unwritten rule...............yes but who cares it's only 2 points and in his mind he was simply sealing the victory.

LOL NOAH, for real?

Dude is chucking up a shot so everyone can get a burger (I don't mind) but he shouldn't be whining to Lillard now.
