League announces $15,000 fine for Boston’s Marcus Smart for making an obscene gesture during last Friday’s game with the Knicks.— David Aldridge (@daldridgetnt) March 7, 2016
Apparently, Marcus did not agree with an official whistling him for a technical foul after he complained about a call. Then he made this gesture at the official.
Yup. Doing this towards a ref is probably not the wisest move. pic.twitter.com/orAo3tr0Bk— CelticsLife.com (@CelticsLife) March 7, 2016
Smart is averaging 9.6 points, 4.2 rebounds and three steals for the Boston Celtics in his second year removed from Stillwater.
