03:55 PM ET 02.04 | The Chicago Bulls lost Joakim Noah last night when their animated center got a little too animated and ended up hurling expletives at the Sacramento Kings. Noah was ejected and now some are calling for the center to be suspended for his actions, something that fans around the NBA seem to always be railing against. While fans and even the league may want to see Noah suspended for his actions on Monday night, Bulls head coach Tom Thibodeau doesn't think that is going to happen. A fine is more likely for Noah if anything even happens at all. Still, Noah's frustrations are starting to show in a negative way, and fans can only hope that this was a one-off outburst that won't happen again.

he'll definitely be suspended. Look, it was a bs call and we all are thinking it but you cant actually tell the ref off like that.

I think they only fined him.

Noah only fined $15,000. I thought he???d get hit with a heavier fine.

wow they let him off with just a fine?

I'm sure if this was Cousins they would have suspended him for 5 games!!!

In the end it was just words. It's not like he got physical with the referees.


No blood, no foul.

As long as bulls keep struggling, he's going 2 blow up.

Well.....after the game, he said he was 'sorry'.


That goes a long way.....especially when you're one of Emperor Stern's favorite players.

Apparently......you can.

honestly he should've been suspended. I guess his fine was just a slap on the wrist....

The Bulls righted the ship last night in PHX.
