It's not a big deal really. He was in the heat of the moment. It happens. The media blows everything up.

He'll be fined, and rightfully so. Can't react that way to paying fans. Stern will come down heavy.

You do realize that the medias job is to report things that happen, right?

And that the youtube video of the incident was posted here before I saw it in any media source?

After a $100,000 fine to Kobe, the NBA PSA's about it, and doing it just after the Suns President came out, there's no doubt he'll get fined.

Flashing the camera

There's cameras all over the arena, capturing everything that goes on, all night long. If a player doesn't want to be shown doing something stupid, he can always refrain from doing something stupid.

NBA fines are out of control. I know the $$$ is relative, but I don't care if you are Bill Gates-- losing 500 grand for saying "******" or complaining about referees is utter bullshit.

Oh, he was just upset! That makes it ok.

Get upset at your job and say that to a customer. See what happens.

It wouldn't be a fine.

He was on the bench. Did he say it to a fan or ref? The NBA fines are BS. I'm a Heat fan. I really don't like Noah, but this is ridiculous at times. He's being fined half a million dollars for that?

When Steve Kerr didn't say anything about it like he did when Kobe said his, I thought they were gonna let it slide. But the fact that the media brought it up and he gave this apology means he will most likely get a fine. (as he deserves for the sake of consistency).

Yep, its the special interest groups that blow everything out of proportion. America has become pussyfied to a ridiculous extreme the last decade or so.

But the media certainly doesn't help by reporting on stupid shit like this like anyone other than the loudmouth minority cares.
