When is is ever ok to walk into the opposing teams locker room? Whether it’s in the NBA or any other sport for that matter, their has got to be a code or a rule for this. After Thursday nights loss to the Oklahoma City Thunder, Chicago Bulls center Joakim Noah opted to pay his friend and former teammate Thabo Sefolosha a visit.
Thunder center Kendrick Perkins wasn’t having any of it and thought it was better if he left:
We just let anyone in the locker room now,” Perkins said.
You want me to leave? I’ll leave,” Noah said.
Get your (expletive) up out of here,” Perkins responded

I don’t care if their former teammates or even friends for that matter! You never let an opponent in your locker room!! Sefolosha might as well had given Noah his teams plan for the rest of the season. If I’m a teammate of Sefolosha he definitely will get an ear full on how it’s a bad idea to give out unwarranted invitations to the locker room. And as for Noah, do you really think you would be welcome in enemy grounds, especially with a guy like Perkins around?
