Gerald Green has been fined 25k for "menacing gestures" during his shot celebrations against the Washington Wizards.

Heat shooting guard Gerald Green has had a phenomenal preseason thus far, and his energetic play has been topped off by some creative celebrations after scoring. Unfortunately Green took it a little to far against the Wizards and has been fined $25,000 for what the NBA has called "Menacing Gestures". The Heat's press release report that the incidents happened with 5:33 and 5:12 remaining in the fourth quarter. According to RotoWorld the gestures included a throat slash and a trigger.

Obviously Green's celebrations come from a place of excitement. With that being said expect him to tone down his celebrations in the future.
