The NBA has announced a $25,000 fine for Chris Wilcox “for making an obscene gesture directed toward fans during a game.”
While the league didn’t say what the specific incident was… I’m pretty sure this is what did it:
Kiss cam ends with Chris Wilcox flipping off the camera man when he and Jared Sullinger put on board.

Yeah… flip off 20,000 people on the road… you’ll get popped by the league. To be fair, I’m pretty sure the bird wasn’t directed at the fans. I’m pretty sure it was directed at the one guy with a camera on his shoulder. And $25k is a steep fine for a guy making the veteran minimum. It’s not like he’s KG, who probably had $25k in the change tray of his Range Rover.
Oh well… Maybe KG will treat Wilcox to something worth $25k to make up for it.
