Joakim Noah goes berserk after ejection in Bulls loss

Since he came into the NBA after being drafted by the Chicago Bulls with the ninth overall pick in 2007, Joakim Noah has developed a reputation as a bit of an emotional character.

The former Florida Gator, who was last week announced as an Eastern Conference reserve for this month's All-Star game in New Orleans, evidently wears his heart on his sleeve and has been known to share his feelings if he is not happy with the way things are going.

On Monday night at Sleep Train Arena, Noah's temper flared to the extreme during the Bulls' dismal 99-70 blowout by the Sacramento Kings.

With just under eight minutes remaining in the third quarter and Tom Thibodeau's crew down 51-40, the 28-year-old was whistled for a harsh foul call after jostling for position under his own basket with Kings counterpart DeMarcus Cousins.

Noah was obviously not happy with what appeared to be botched call - and he certainly wasn't afraid to convey his displeasure to the referees.

This earned him a second technical and a subsequent ejection, a decision which infuriated the intimidating center more as he launched into a heated tirade against the officials - which included him pointing menacingly and some expletives - before being restrained by teammates and escorted from the court.
