Wow, this board was all lit up when Kobe's "homophobic" incident happened, but no comment on Noah's verbal antics?

Frankly didn't hear anything about it last night, first I heard was this morning...missed it on the broadcast, seems he says "F*** you f****t to a fan at the end of this clip:


He should be fined more than Kobe since his was directed at a fan if you ask me.

And what I'm far more shocked at is that it came from Noah, you'd think he would be less likely than a heterosexual player to use the term, or is this a similar case to it being OK for African Americans to call each other n****r but not caucasians.

One was much less publicized. Guess which.

And much like the Kobe fiasco, I again don't give a shit. This country needs to stop fetishizing being offended.

david stern can kiss my nuts.

it was 9pm eastern and this game was still in the first quarter... on a sunday night. that's bullshit.

there is no good reason whatsoever why this game could not have been played in the middle of the afternoon. heck, even the TV rating whores at the NFL put their sunday playoff games on in the middle of the afternoon.

i refuse to watch in protest.

noah should be suspended for the rest of this playoff series, if not longer. i'd have said something earlier, but i didn't watch the game because i like to sleep, and am only now hearing about it.

but yea, it's really because it's not kobe.

I think it should be the same punishment as Kobe.

Oh, it should be the same? After a highly-publicized incident where all players were reminded/warned to be a little more sensitive? That doesnt call for a more severe penalty, especially when, as pointed out by Hewson, it was towards a fan?

Your bias is unbelievable.

No, it calls for the same penalty. The word is the word. Why should some drunk asshole in the stands be treated differently than a guy on the court doing his job? Both were from the bench, both could be heard from the stands (if your concern is fans hearing him say it).

This has nothing to do with bias. I certainly think much less of Noah today than I did before this.

I canceled Noah's appearance at the camp I run, if it makes you feel better.

I'm going to take a break from Faggotgate Jr. to watch some hoops here in a bit. Anyone care to join me?

Really? His game is very teachable. I love the way he plays. He's the ideal role player.

But he's also an idiot, so there's that.

This. The guy's always expended a lot of energy into portraying himself as more cultured/enlightened than the 'average' NBA player (snarky implication about Noah's personal preferences aside).

Right, but my point is that because this was such a recent controversy, the league would be even more angry that he did the same thing so soon after Kobe's incident.

Kobe is an uberstar. Noah is, well, Noah. Kobe taking a shot is bigger news than anything Noah does. Doesn't excuse it. Its just reality.

maybe the fan called Noah a faggot too, who knows.

i find it hard to believe though that when a professional athlete, in the heat of the moment in a huge game, really means anything derogatory etc by yelling out "faggot". just venting frustration and it's a bad choice of words, but does anyone really think he's making a statement on homosexuality or that he's a homophobe? if he'd said asshole would anything have been written?

I know. I'm struggling to get my point across properly. I hope someone knows what I mean
