04:16 PM ET 12.13 | Chicago Bulls center Joakim Noah took extra satisfaction out of beating the Philadelphia 76ers on the road on Wednesday night. Noah told reporters that he felt the 76ers' crowd was "disrespectful" after he suffered an injury during the Bulls' six-game playoff loss to Philadelphia last season. "I couldn't wait to come back here," Noah said. "When I went down last year and people were cheering, I felt that was real disrespectful. And I will use that as motivation every time I come into this building. And I'm going to (egg the crowd on) for the rest of my career every time I come here."

A couple of Bulls fans were shot on a Philly train after that game. Noah got the better end of the deal.

Looks like it's been heavy on his mind for sometime now. Its good he let it out for his own sanity.

If y're a millionairre these are the kinda things that bother you... weather, gravity and discrete fans. It's just his luck in life to be blessed with money and a turkey brain.

But I won't call a regular season win 'revenge' - you gotta stick it to them in the playoffs.
Go Noah... keep posting those doubles!

Philly is the same group of fans that boos Santa Claus and cheered when Michael Irvin got injured. In what world does Noah think Philly fans would show any class?
