Wizards’ Kelly Oubre fined $25,000 for kicking ball into stands at end of Game 2

The clock had expired, the Wizards and their fans were celebrating going up 2-0 on Atlanta in their first-round series, the ball was bouncing out near midcourt…

And Washington’s Kelly Oubre Jr. did his best Lionel Messi and kicked the ball far into the stands.

That cost him a $25,000 fine from the league, which frowns on guys doing something that could potentially injure fans.

It was innocent¬†and not done with any malicious intent, but that’s moot. Oubre gets fined.

He should have cursed during his postgame interview, it costs less.
