Yesterday, Stu Jackson, NBA Executive Vice President Basketball Operations (and gangster), announced that DeShawn Stevenson and Paul Pierce had been fined $25,000 each for making "menacing gestures" during games over the weekend. The NBA didn't get specific, but it's believed Stevenson was dinged for his Game 4 Undertaker impression, while Pierce lost bills thanks to Al Horford's mouth and this:
As you can see from the comments at Reds Army, there are a lot of differing opinions on what Pierce was actually "throwing." Was it a symbol for "a-hole?" Was it a mark for "blood, sweat and tears" like the Celtics brass says? Or was it, in fact, a Bloods' gang sign? What do you think? Should Calderon and his gangbangin' ways be worried?
