Female Miami Heat fan flips off Joakim Noah after his ejection (video)


Jeez Louise, lady, cool your jets a bit. A female Miami Heat fan let her middle finger do the talking following Chicago Bulls big man Joakim Noah’s ejection during the Heat’s 115-78 win over the Bulls at AmericanAirlines Arena on Wednesday night.

In Game 2 of a series that is rapidly developing into one rife with hostility and bad blood, Noah was ejected after receiving his second technical foul in the game after he argued a call from the bench during the fourth quarter.

That’s when one particular lady seated near the tunnel, seemingly allowing any sense of decorum fall by the wayside, flipped Noah extended her middle finger right in Noah’s face as he exited the court.

Bird is the word, apparently, for this lady:

Man, get a look on that lady’s face. She looks like she’s about to become totally unhinged. With that in mind, Noah deserves credit for rising above and completely ignoring the open act of hostility. And it wasn’t only the woman directing vitriol at Noah. Check out the guy next to her. At least he had the good sense not to wave his middle finger in a man’s face who is far larger than him. Good call.

The series is tied 1-1 and moves to Chicago for Games 3 and 4. I can’t wait to see if this lady has anything up her sleeve should a Bulls player get ejected during Game 5 when the series returns to Miami. Maybe she’ll incorporate some props next time.
