Anthony Davis flipped off a fan after the Pelicans’ home loss to the Hornets on Wednesday:

NBA release:

New Orleans Pelicans forward/center Anthony Davis has been fined $15,000 for directing an obscene gesture toward a fan, it was announced today by Kiki VanDeWeghe, Executive Vice President, Basketball Operations.

The incident took place as Davis was exiting the court area upon conclusion of the Pelicans’ 115-109 loss to the Charlotte Hornets on April 3

Andrew Lopez of The Times-Picayune:

One source said Davis was told simply, “(expletive) you, AD!” which prompted his response.

This fine was expected and warranted.

But what about the fan? Fans shouldn’t be allowed to curse at players. Did the fan face any punishment?
