In advance of a home playoff game against the Brooklyn Nets last season, Raptors GM Masai Ujiri screamed “F— Brooklyn” into a microphone at a fan rally outside the arena.
The league deemed this inappropriate, and doled out a slap-on-the-wrist fine of $25,000.
A year later, it seems as though Ujiri has not learned his lesson.
Paul Pierce of the Wizards was quoted as saying that the Raptors “don’t have the ‘It’ that makes you feel worried.”
Ujiri’s response, (along with some “F— Paul Pierce” chants from the assembled masses):

The league may or may not see fit to fine Ujiri once more, but either way, his enthusiasm is good for the game, and the Raptors fan base undoubtedly agrees.
