The NBA has fined Cleveland Cavalier Tristan Thompson $15,000 for making an inappropriate gesture towards a Brooklyn Nets fan during a game on Monday night, the Associated Press is reporting.
TMZ Sports has footage of Thompson flipping off a Nets fan who reportedly said "get outta here, you bum" because apparently it's still 1922 in Brooklyn.
The Cavs defeated the Nets 99-97.
