Belinelli fined for obscene gesture?
All Marco Belinelli was doing was channeling his inner Sam Cassell. Maybe if he used that excuse, the Bulls guard reportedly would not be $15,000 lighter.
The NBA came down on Belinelli for his ‘obscene gesture,’ docking him 15 large, according to USA Today. So what did he do that was so bad? Check it out.
But this is far from the first time this has been done in the classy world of sports. Let's take a trip down memory lane, shall we.
Here's the originator, Sam Cassell, bringing sexy back. As only he can.
Eddie House couldn't contain himself (yeah, we went there), during this critical shot against the Thunder. The NBA docked him $25,000. Check out his form.
But this type of celebration isn't limited to journeyman guards. Even a future Hall of Famer, one of the greatest Lakers of all time and the self-proclaimed Black Mamba has had his "ballsy" moment.
