NBA fines Bulls' Dwyane Wade $25K for throat slash gesture

Dwyane Wade had himself a night in his debut with the Chicago Bulls on Thursday. Unfortunately, it also cost him $25,000.

Wade hit a dagger three with less than 30 seconds left on the clock and in sheer jubilation, celebrated by pretending to slash his throat, signifying that the Celtics had lost.

The NBA announced on Friday, that Wade's gesture was "inappropriate" and fined him $25,000. Wade was well aware that the fine was coming and apologized on Twitter earlier in the day.

Wade and the Bulls will look to build on their strong season-opening performance on Friday against the Indiana Pacers.
