NBA superstar LeBron James on Friday (Nov. 26) was fined $15,000 for an obscene gesture, and warned by the league about using profane language, according to ESPN.
The NBA superstar made the gesture Wednesday (November 24) after scoring a late shot in the Lakers’ 124-116 overtime victory against the Indiana Pacers. The latest league infraction comes after James missed a game at New York while serving a suspension for hitting Detroit Pistons center Isaiah Stewart in the face.
After the victory over the Pacers, James used profanity in an interview with the sports news network.
Additionally, the NBA also fined Portland’s Robert Covington $15,000 for throwing his facemask at a referee on Wednesday. He was given a technical foul and ejected for the action, which came with 49 seconds left in the second quarter.
