Joakim Noah is known as one of the most intense players in the NBA and it looks like that counts double when his playoff hopes are on the line.
According to the Chicago Sun Times the Bulls center got into a fairly heated shouting match with one of the Washington Wizards staff during morning shootarounds ahead of the key NBA playoff game tonight.
And it seems neither he, nor Wizards security Manager Jackie Miles were shy about dropping the F-bomb as tempers flared.
Miles, seeking to free up the Verizon Center court for the Wizards shootaround, apparently started screaming at the Bulls players to leave.
As you can imagine that didn't go down particularly well with Mr. Noah.
The 2014 Defensive Player of the Year was far from keen to oblige to Miles' demands, allegedly responding:
"Get the f*** out of here, I'm not done...get the f***k out of here."
"Don't f*****g talk to me that way."
It is unlikely Joakim Noah needed any extra motivation ahead of his team's crucial road game, but he might have just got it with this morning altercation.
Bulls fans will just be hoping he can convert that aggression in to points rather than fouls.
The Wizards currently lead the Bulls 2-0 in their first round playoff series.
