PHOENIX — Bulls' All-Star center Joakim Noah was fined $15,000 for verbally abusing the officials after being ejected from Monday night's loss in Sacramento.

Noah won't be suspended by the league for his epic tirade, which immediately went viral, likely in part because of his contrite postgame apology to the officiating crew.

After being assessed his second technical foul of the third quarter, Noah proceeded to direct a profane, two-word phrase to each referee before being escorted off the court by team security.
