In the NBA equivalent of being voted off the island, Chicago Bulls players voted to further discipline rookie forward Joakim Noah by having him sit an extra game as punishment for his dressing down of assistant coach Ron Adams during a shoot-around on Friday.

Interim head coach Jim Boylan sat Noah for that Friday game against the Sixers, which the Bulls won. But then the players called for a vote on whether the discipline should be extended and they unanimously put Noah (left) in street clothes for a second game, a Bulls loss to Atlanta.
