Chicago Bulls player forgets Kobe lesson, uses anti-gay slur during playoff game

Chicago Bulls Center Joakim Noah

Chicago Bulls Center Joakim Noah apologized after last night's NBA playoff game for appearing to direct an anti-gay slur toward a fan during the game's first quarter.

The Miami Heat played host to the Bulls in the third game of the NBA Eastern Conference Finals.

Noah owned up to the choice of words, saying immediately after the game that he was sorry for using the slur: “A fan said something, and I said something back. I apologized. I don't know what's going to happen. I got caught up. I didn't mean any disrespect to anybody.”
