At this point, few have missed Wednesday’s most viral NBA story, involving Joakim Noah and a middle finger. Game 2 of the Miami Heat vs Chicago Bulls series was feisty from the get-go, and emotions eventually boiled over, as Noah and Taj Gibson were both ejected out of the game.
Following the toss, Noah made his way to the locker rooms, and was met by boos as he was exiting the court. One lady showed her emotions towards the Bulls’ center with a flick of the middle finger.
Well, it seems as though the story has quite a lot of background. No, not the flip of the finger itself, but rather the lady to whom it belongs.
According to the Big Lead, the woman, Filomena Tobias, has quite a history. Back in 2008, her husband died in a rather suspicious way. I suggest you to head over to the Big Lead, who have links to the relevant stories.
“She’s embarrassed, but she is being a good sport,” the daughter told the Sun Sentinel on Thursday. “She was having fun just like any other fan. All she has to say is that people need to get a life.”
