Joakim Noah was fined $15,000 after his profanity-laced tirade aimed at officials during the Chicago Bulls' 99-70 loss at the Sacramento Kings on Monday night.
Noah, who was automatically ejected in the third quarter after picking up his second technical foul, unleashed a burst of invective anger on the game's three referees, pointing at each individually and screaming "F--- you!" before being escorted off the floor Monday night.
Noah apologized for his actions after the game, which was the Kings' first victory in eight games.
"I'm really disappointed," Noah said. "I shouldn't have acted that way. I apologize. I'm sorry to all three referees out there. They're out there trying to do their jobs, and I should never have said the things that I said."
Noah, who picked up his first technical less than three minutes earlier, earned the second after reacting to a foul call.
"I hope they accept my apology, and I hope I can move on from this," he said.
