Marcus Smart flipped off a fan late in the Celtics’ loss to the Bulls on Tuesday.
That earned Smart a $25,000 fine and, of course, some interrogation from the media.
Chris Forsberg of ESPN:
Something was said and reacted a little differently than I should have.
What was said? Smart:
To be honest, after it happened, I kind of lost my train of thought of what was said. Can’t really remember.
This is why I said the Celtics shouldn’t just leave this up to the league to handle. They need Smart to channel his passion in a way that he’s remain focused.
It’s a fine line, one Smart doesn’t land on the right side of often enough.
