Kevin Durant Fined $25,000 for “Menacing Gesture” vs. Warriors


 

Oklahoma City Thunder forward Kevin Durant was fined $25,000 by the NBA for a “menacing gesture” following a dunk in the second quarter against the Warriors on Thursday.

You can see the play below (also debated on ESPN’s First Take):

After finishing the dunk, Durant pretended to slash his throat, or maybe was just signaling “it’s over.”

Either way, the league gave him no lenience and slapped him with a hefty fine.

The Thunder beat the Warriors 116-97, and Durant nearly had a triple-double with 31 points, 10 rebounds and eight assists.

    Nice block then a nice dunk. No need for fining here.
