(CBS) It’s getting heated even before tonight’s Game 3 between the Bulls and Wizards starts.
Chicago big man and team leader Joakim Noah got into a shouting match with Washington manager/security guard Jackie Miles on Friday morning, the Chicago Sun-Times reported, after Miles criticized Noah for staying on the Verizon Center court too long in the Bulls’ portion of shootaround.
From the Sun-Times:
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.
Eventually, the hoopla quieted down and Noah finished his morning routine, the Sun-Times reported.
It’s not the first time Miles has chirped at the Bulls, either. He did the same get off “my court” routine before the teams’ matchup in Washington in January, the Sun-Times reported.
