NEW YORK -- Boston Celtics forward-center Chris Wilcox has been fined $25,000 for making an obscene gesture directed toward fans during a game, it was announced today by Stu Jackson, NBA Executive Vice President Basketball Operations.

Wilcox's actions occurred during a timeout with 8:47 remaining in the 4th period of the Celtics 95-94 loss to the 76ers on Friday, Dec. 7.
Thoughts?

Well they put the kiss cam on him and Courtney Lee (i think) and he gave the kiss cam the bird.

All in good fun. Probably did warrant a fine though.


how much wood would a woodchuck chuck if a woodchuck was chris bosh?

This was on the jumbotron at the sixers home game of the 2 game series. It was kiss cam.

It was wilcox and jared sullinger by the way...to correct myself. No videos yet though. I have been looking.  :P

Haha. Thats one of the funniest things Ive heard in a while.

Definitely warrant of a fine though. Any other player in the league would have gotten the same penalty.

Oh.  So he essentially gave the finger to every 76er fan in the building?  Too bad Tommy didn't see he would've gotten a Tommy point.

In Philly, isn't that a sign of affection?

But yeah, obvious fine.

Good for Wilcox. These "fan cams" in NBA arena across the league are starting to get ridiculous.

I have season tixs and can't enjoy a single game without having to sit through the fan close-ups at every game on the big video screen.

What ever happened to going to a basketball game just to watch basketball?

Is there a kiss cam in Boston?

Has a kiss cam ever settled on the refs?  Or a player and a ref?

Would've done the same to anyone in the league. You don't flip off fans.

That's not true.  He would have fined the Spurs twice as much.
