Tristan Thompson tossed up the no-no finger when the Cleveland Cavaliers visited the Brooklyn Nets and cost himself $15,000 for the gesture.
The NBA announced the fine, which stemmed from Monday’s clash that Cleveland won. Shortly after the buzzer sounded on the 99-97 Cleveland victory, Thompson turned to the Barclays Center crowd and flipped the bird.
After the game, he said “they better put some respect on my name.”
Thompson’s final line for Cleveland’s triumph over the Nets officially includes 19 points, 14 rebounds, two blocks and a $15,000 fine.
He’d probably say it’s worth the price.
