Dwight Howard’s gotta learn that the cameras are always on him because a temporary lapse in judgement just cost him some big bucks.
During a recent game against the Cleveland Cavaliers, the Charlotte Hornets center, after a pretty impressive dunk, decided to uh, antagonize someone on the opposing team by making an obscene gesture (which you can see below).
Aside from being the subject of Twitter jokes, Howard has to shell out a $35,000 fine for his actions. Oh yeah, and his team lost that game too, by one point.
At least he’s averaging 15.5 points, 12.9 rebounds and 1.3 blocks per contest so his game is straight.
