Lebron James Fined For Making ‘Inappropriate Gesture’ During Game

LeBron James was fined $15,000 for an obscene gesture during the Los Angeles Lakers’ overtime win against the Indiana Pacers on Wednesday night, the league announced Friday.

James was fined for hitting the Sam Cassell celebration against the Pacers after making a shot late in Los Angeles’ 124-116 overtime victory in Indiana on Wednesday night.

James dropped a season-high 39 points in Indianapolis, which marked his first game back from his one-game suspension after an altercation with Pistons center Isaiah Stewart

James addressed his one-game suspension after the win and thought he shouldn’t have been suspended, saying: “I mean, it’s some bulls**t,” he said. “But whatever.”

The league also warned James “for using profane language during media availability in response to league imposed discipline” on Friday when it fined him.
