(Newser) – Joakim Noah of the Chicago Bulls apparently hurled the same profanity-plus-gay slur combo that Kobe Bryant used last month—and, like Bryant, he got caught on tape. After getting called for a foul during last night’s Eastern Conference Finals game, Noah can be seen on TNT’s telecast yelling what seems to be "f*** you, f*****" at a heckler behind his team’s bench, USA Today reports. After the game, Noah admitted, “a fan said something, and I said something back. I apologized. … I got caught up. I didn't mean any disrespect to anybody.” The $100,000 question: Like Bryant, will Noah be slapped with a fine?
