Wilcox fined for obscene gesture towards fans

The NBA, wrapping up its Sunday fine business, fined Chris Wilcox $25,000 Sunday for an obscene gesture towards the fans in the Celtics' 95-94 loss to the 76ers on Friday.

Wilcox is averaging 4.5 points and 2.3 rebounds this season for Boston, which got revenge on Philly on Saturday in a blowout win.

Update 6:25 p.m.: The Boston Globe reports the incident happened when the Sixers zeroed in on Wilcox and rookie Jared Sullinger on the "Kiss Cam" during the game. Sullinger denied that Wilcox was "flipping off" the camera.
