While the rest of the NBA world was focused on Dwight Howard and his ETO last night, there was a basketball game going on in Chicago. A good one, too. As John Lucas III did his best Derrick Rose impression and led the Bulls to a 106-102 victory without the reigning MVP, Dwyane Wade's father was not enjoying the show.

According to a report from ESPN, Wade's father was asked to watch his language and refrain from using profanity. When he refused to heed the warning, he was ejected from his seat at the United Center.

According to the venue's website, the United Center "intends to provide all guests with a safe, comfortable, and friendly environment. Our family atmosphere prohibits foul or abusive language, and any violation of these policies may result in ejection."

The Heat declined comment on the matter.

While Wade's father wasn't happy with the outcome, there was one beaming parent in the building: Lucas III's agent tweeted after the game that his mother was in attendance for her son's unexpected 24-point outburst against the defending Eastern Conference champs.
