Lakers’ LeBron James fined $15,000 for obscene gesture

NBA Fined LeBron James $15,000 Friday for Obscene Act. They also warned James, the Lakers’ superstar, about profane language.

James made the gesture after making a shot late in Los Angeles’ 124-116 overtime victory in Indiana on Wednesday night.

After being suspended for striking Detroit’s center Isaiah Stewart in his face and drawing blood, he had already missed a New York loss. In his postgame interview, when discussing the suspension, he spoke profanity.
