Joakim Noah #13 (L) and Brian Scalabrine #24 of the Chicago Bulls look on dejected from the bench late in the fourth quarter against the Miami Heat in Game Three of the Eastern Conference Finals during the 2011 NBA Playoffs on May 22, 2011 at American Airlines Arena in Miami.

*Chicago Bulls player Joakim Noah pulled a Kobe Bryant during last night’s Eastern Conference Finals game against the Miami Heat…he was caught on camera using a homophobic slur.

Noah said he expects to be fined by the league after he was overheard screaming at a fan by the bench and capped it off by yelling, “F**k you, f**got.”

Bryant of the Los Angeles Lakers was recently fined $100,000 for calling a referee “f**got” during a game.

Speaking to reporters in the locker room, Noah said, “I apologize. The fan said something to me that I thought was disrespectful, and I got caught up in the moment, and I said some things that I shouldn’t have said. I was frustrated and I don’t mean no disrespect to anybody. I just got caught up.”

The Bulls lost 96-85 and are now down 2-1 in the series.
