Center Joakim Noah was fined $15,000 Monday by the NBA office for throwing the ball into the stands and striking a photographer during the Bulls' 110-78 loss to the Toronto Raptors on Saturday.

The incident came with 7:19 left in the third quarter. Noah had the ball under the basket near the Bulls' bench and slapped at it out of frustration, hitting the photographer.

That's an automatic technical foul and Noah was ejected because it was his second of the game.

"He has to control his emotions," coach Vinny Del Negro said before the fine was announced.

Yes he needs to control his emotions but at least he cares!

Have a talk with him and get him to realize how valuable he has become to the team.

If a coach, I would never shut down a player's passion for the sport.

Losing sucks!
