Original Text

Joakim Noah has never been one to keep his emotions bottled up. On Monday night, we saw a prime example of that going terribly wrong.

Noah wasn't exactly thrilled with the officiating during the third quarter of the Chicago Bulls' matchup with the Sacramento Kings.

Noah offered a postgame apology for the incident, via the Chicago Tribune:

I shouldn't have acted that way. I apologize, I'm sorry to all three of the referees out there. They're trying to do their jobs. ... I hope they accept my apology and I hope we can move on from this.

The premature exit ended Noah's double-digit rebounding streak at 18 games, per K.C. Johnson of the Chicago Tribune.
