Durant fined $25,000 by NBA for ‘menacing gesture’
Question of the Day
NEW YORK (AP) - The NBA has fined Oklahoma City star Kevin Durant for making a “menacing gesture,” when he pretended to slice his throat after throwing down a big dunk during the Thunder’s victory against the Golden State Warriors.
The play that led to Durant’s costly celebration occurred with about 1:45 left in the second quarter of Oklahoma City’s 116-97 win at Golden State.
Thunder guard Russell Westbrook blocked Stephen Curry’s layup, and Durant corralled the ball and went in for a soaring dunk at the other end of the court. He then made throat-slashing gesture and crossed his hands in prayer.
“Kill `em and pray for `em after the game,” Durant said.
“It’s nothing against the team I’m playing against,” Durant added. “Come out with a mindset and be friends after the game.”
