Monday March 26th, 2012

Chicago Bulls center Joakim Noah apologized to the officiating crew after being ejected Saturday night in Toronto and throwing a ball in the direction of referee Derrick Collins, according to ESPNChicago.com.

"I just want to apologize to the referee," Noah said, according to the report. "That was wrong. I was frustrated at the call and I overreacted."

After disagreeing with a foul call, Noah got a technical foul. He later earned a second technical for throwing the ball at Collins. Bulls coach Tom Thibodeau said the team will handle the matter internally.
