Chicago Bulls center Joakim Noah regrets his decision to attempt a last-second three-pointer in an effort to win fans at the United Center a free Big Mac, during Chicago's 99-93 win over the Orlando Magic.
Joakim Noah regrets his last-second decision on Tuesday night, as the center attempted a three-pointer with just 3.8 seconds on the clock -- despite the fact that the Chicago Bulls led the Orlando Magic, 99-93.
Noah attempted the three-pointer because of a promotion at the United Center this season, which enables fans to receive a free Big Mac if the Bulls exceed 100 points in a home contest.
"I talked to him about it, but I'm going to keep that private," Thibodeau said after Wednesday's practice.
Noah elaborated on his decision after the game.
I was trying to get the people a Big Mac. They really wanted a Big Mac (judging by how loud the crowd was getting) and I felt like, not only did I take the shot and miss the shot, we didn't even get the Big Mac.
Noah did add that he regrets taking the shot, and that he'll pass on the three-pointer next time.
Fans had a chance to win a free Big Mac prior to Noah's shot, when Kirk Hinrich was at the free throw line, but missed both shots prior to Noah's three-point attempt.
