This has been a good week for obscene gestures, and the NBA’s coffers.
On Wednesday, Orlando Magic forward Glen Davis was fined $35,000 by the NBA for flipping the bird toward heckling fans in Toronto. On Friday, it was Reggie Evans’ turn.
Evans, the forward of the Los Angeles Clippers, was hit with a $25,000 fine for a middle-finger salute in a home win over New Orleans on Monday.
Both Davis and Evans tried to make their vulgarity appear to be something else.
Davis had a cut on his head, touched his middle finger to the blood, extended the finger and then licked the blood off it. Evans extended his middle finger and scratched his face while staring directly at someone.
