Kobe Bryant was reportedly fined $100,000 for referring to a referee as a f****t.  Shortly after Joakim Noah was fined $50,000 for using the same slur.  The only difference being Noah directed his homophobic anger at a fan.  The NBA has set an interesting precedent here.  I would love to see the metric used by the NBA that determines who is most offended by homosexual slurs.  Are the NBA fans half as gay as the NBA refs, or is Noah only half as homophobic as Bryant?
