Paul Pierce flashed a gang sign last year during an NBA playoff game. Pierce plays for the Boston Celtics and was fined $25,000 for the display. You can see him do the gang sign at the 30 second mark on the video.
The gang sign Paul Pierce flashed was a letter B, an unmistakable emblem of the Piru Bloods. He flashed it at Hawks player Al Horford.
It seems $25,000 is a pretty stiff penalty for a hand gesture. What do you think?
