The NBA has today announced that it has fined Orlando Magic point-guard Jameer Nelson $15,000 "for making an obscene gesture" during his team's 128-125 loss to the Chicago Bulls.
With just 11.2 seconds left in the game Nelson reacted to sinking a step-back jumper to tie the scores at 101, in a fairly unique way.
As the player made his way to the Magic's bench, after the Bulls had called a 20 second time-out, he performed a 'celebratory dance'.
Unfortunately for Nelson, the dance, which saw him cup his hands in front of his groin has not gown down well with those in charge of the NBA.
Nelson's moves echoed those made famous by current Washington Wizard assistant coach Sam Cassell, and he is not the first player to receive a fine for his troubles.
Andre Blache of the Brooklyn Nets, and Kobe Bryant have both had the balls to perform the celebration during a game, while Milwaukee Bucks forward Caron Butler was the most recent culprit, picking up an identical $15,000 fine back in November.
For your viewing pleasure, here are Nelson's "obscene" moves.
And for good measure, here is Kobe's effort.
