“I don’t know how many techs we got. … I would call that not keeping your cool, not being very Zen,” – Noah
The Bulls had an easier time racking up techs than field goals in game 2. Chicago had 6 of the game’s 9 techs (most in 20 years), 2 ejections and a 37 point beatdown. The loss was the worst playoffs loss in franchise history and best playoff win in Miami’s history. Before the game turned into a massacre, Noah and LeBron were both called for a tech near the end of the 1st when Noah decided to hug LeBron a little longer than James wanted. The way LeBron pushed Noah the first thing that popped in my head was the late Bernie Mac in Above the Rim yelling at Duane Martin. I can’t find that scene on YouTube but I did find this pretty hilarious TV edit of the film.

There was a lot of “forget you” drops in that clip but I have a feeling that’s not what this lady was saying to Noah after he was ejected.
