Wizards forward Kyle Kuzma enjoys engaging with opposing fans.

But giving the finger to a fan after hitting a 3-pointer? The NBA frowns on that getting caught on widely disseminated video doing that.

NBA release:

Washington Wizards forward Kyle Kuzma has been fined $15,000 for directing an obscene gesture toward a fan, it was announced today by Byron Spruell, President, League Operations.

The incident took place with 9:34 remaining in the fourth quarter of the Wizards’ 119-116 overtime win over the Detroit Pistons on Dec. 8

That time, he celebrated with three fingers raised.
