People tend to think it's only the NFL who's crusading against all forms of fun. Not the case.

Green committed the heinous act during a game against the Wizards.

Heat guard Gerald Green fined $25K by NBA for "making menacing gestures on the playing court during game" on Wednesday vs. Wizards.— Jeff Zillgitt (@JeffZillgitt) October 23, 2015
The friendly atta boy gesture you give to an overachieving co-worker is a "menacing gesture" on the NBA court. Them's the breaks.
