LeBron James fined USD 15k for obscene gesture

LeBron James fined USD 15k for obscene gesture.

NEW YORK (AP) – LeBron James was fined $ 15,000 on Friday for an obscene gesture by the NBA, which also warned the Lakers superstar against using foul language.

James made the gesture after taking a shot at the end of Los Angeles’ 124-116 overtime victory in Indiana on Wednesday night.

He had missed a loss in New York the night before after a game was called off for hitting Detroit center Isaiah Stewart in the face and drawing blood last Sunday. He used profanity in his post-game interview after the Indiana win when he discussed the suspension.

Also on Friday, the NBA fined Portland’s Robert Covington $ 15,000 for throwing his mask at a referee Wednesday.

He received a technical foul and was sent off for that action, with 49 seconds remaining in the second quarter of the Trail Blazers’ 125-121 loss at Sacramento.
