Dwyane Wade fined $15,000 by league for obscene gesture

Dwyane Wade was a frustrated man at the end of the third quarter Wednesday night, his team had blown a couple possessions in a row in what would go on to be a two-point loss for Miami to the Charlotte Hornets (Wade had 17 points but on 21 shots).

His frustrations got the better of him and he gave a “one-finger salute” to part of the Hornets crowd.

That cost him $15,000 as the league fined him on Thursday for his “obscene gesture.”

Wade is making $15 million this season. So he can probably swing this and be okay financially.

Just for fun, it should be noted you would have to be cited by the league five times for flopping in one season to earn a fine that large. Just so you know where the priorities are.
