Cavaliers' Thompson fined $15K for flipping off fan

Cavs big man Tristan Thompson has been known to get into it with players and fans of opposing teams, which is exactly what happened in a recent game.

Thompson's fine is relatively small in comparison to punishments a few other National Basketball Association players have faced in recent weeks.

On Thursday, the National Basketball Association announced it would fine Khloe Kardashian's boyfriend $15,000 for "making an inappropriate gesture toward a spectator", stemming from an incident that occurred during the Cavaliers' Monday game against the Nets in Brooklyn.


Tristan is in the midst of his five-year contract with the Cleveland Cavaliers, which is reportedly worth $82 million.

Thompson played 34 minutes against the Nets and ended the game with 19 points and 14 rebounds. After the missed shot, Thompson turned and stared down fans seated near the floor before giving the obscene gesture as he turned and walked away.
