The NBA fined Boston Celtics forward/center Chris Wilcox $25,000 for making an obscene gesture directed toward fans during Friday's loss in Philadelphia, NBA executive vice president of basketball operations Stu Jackson announced Sunday.

During a fourth-quarter timeout, Wilcox gave an in-house cameraman broadcasting on the video board the middle finger when a "Kiss Cam" segment ended with a shot of him and teammate Jared Sullinger sitting next to each other on the Celtics' bench.

Wilcox, one of the nicest guys in the Celtics' locker room, is playing on a one-year, veteran-minimum contract.

This is the second fine of the season for Boston. Kevin Garnett was also fined $25,000 for his part in a dust-up with the Brooklyn Nets last month that left Rajon Rondo suspended for two games.
