NBA fines LeBron James $ 15,000 for obscene gesture, cautioned against language


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

James made the move after taking a late shot in Los Angeles’ 124-116 overtime win at Indiana on Wednesday night.

He had missed a loss in New York a night earlier after being suspended in a game for hitting Detroit center Isaiah Stewart in the face and spilling blood last Sunday. He used profanity in his post-game interview after the Indiana win when discussing the suspension.
