Paul Pierce, Joakim Noah get into preseason altercation

NBA The Wizards and Bulls squared off in an NBA exhibition Monday night, and old rivals Paul Pierce and Joakim Noah were back at each other's throats. Noah and Pierce mostly gabbed at each other, but when Pierce poked Noah in the forehead it set off the Chicago big man. That's when referees had to separate them. Be it posturing or real fire, the tussle was perfect in that it featured two of the NBA's most-reviled players, and no doubt many would ...
