In case Joakim Noah and the Bulls needed any more motivation down 2-0 to the Washington Wizards, they probably got it during shoot-around this morning. Ordered to exit the court by the Wizards’ security manager, Jackie Miles, Noah took exception and got into a shouting match with the guard according to the Sun Times:
Miles came onto the Verizon Center hardwood and started screaming for Bulls players to exit so the Wizards could start their shootaround. Noah is usually the last Bull off the court in shootarounds, going through his morning routine, and wasn’t having any of it.
Noah told Miles, “Get the [bleep] out of here, I’m not done … get the [bleep] out of here.’’
Miles started firing back with, “Don’t [bleeping] talk to me that way,’’ and then again telling Noah to leave the court.
It didn’t stop there, as the two went back-and-forth for at least another minute, while Bulls coach Tom Thibodeau was addressing the media just off the court.
It has also been reported by the Chicago Sun-Times that when the Bulls visited the Wizards during a January game as Miles yelled at Bulls players to get off “my court”.
