Brooklyn Nets center-forward Andray Blatche was fined $15,000 by the National Basketball Association for making an obscene gesture during his team’s 101-100 win over the Miami Heat two nights ago.
Blatche’s actions occurred with two minutes, 40 seconds left in the game on Nov. 1 at Barclays Center in Brooklyn, according to Rod Thorn, president of the league’s Basketball Operations.
Blatche, 27, was celebrating a three-point shot by Brooklyn’s Joe Johnson when he made a gesture of a sexual nature on the sidelines, ESPN reported.
