As noted at ESPN on Monday, Joakim Noah said he is sorry for his alleged gay slur to a fan during the first quarter of Chicago Bulls-Miami Heat Game 3 of the Eastern Conference finals.

“I apologize,” Joakim Noah was quoted on the report, which was seen on the video getting mad after he picked his second foul with 6:26 left in the first quarter.

“The fan said something to me that I thought was disrespectful, and I got caught up in the moment, and I said some things that I shouldn’t have said.” The 26-year old Chicago Bulls player said.

“I was frustrated and I don’t mean no disrespect to anybody. I just got caught up.” Noah added, noting that he expects a fine for his gay slur comment.

As of this writing, NBA have not yet release a comment on this issue.

Last April, Los Angeles Lakers’ Kobe Bryant was fined $100,000 by the NBA for directing a gay slur at referee Bennie Adams during their against the San Antonio Spurs.
