Obscene Gesture: Lakers’ LeBron James Fined $15,000

LeBron James was fined $15,000 for disgusting and indecent gesture on Friday by the NBA, which as well cautioned the Lakers superstar about using profane language.

James made the signal after making a shot late in Los Angeles’ 124-116 overtime victory in Indiana on Wednesday night.

He had missed a loss at New York a night earlier following his suspension of one game for hitting Detroit center Isaiah Stewart in the face and drawing blood last Sunday. He used obscene language in his post-game discussion after the victory in Indiana when talking about the suspension.

In addition on Friday, the NBA fined Portland’s Robert Covington $15,000 for throwing his face-mask at a referee Wednesday. He was given a technical foul and sent out for that action, with 49 seconds left in the second quarter of the Trail Blazers’ 125-121 loss at Sacramento.
