    NEW YORK — LeBron James was fined $15,000 (around P750,000) for an obscene gesture on Friday (Saturday, Manila time) by the NBA, which also warned the Lakers superstar about using profane language.

    James made the gesture after making a shot late in Los Angeles' 124-116 overtime victory in Indiana on Wednesday night (Thursday, Manila time).

    He had missed a loss at New York a night earlier after he was suspended one game for hitting Detroit center Isaiah Stewart in the face and drawing blood last Sunday. He used profanity in his postgame interview after the victory in Indiana when discussing the suspension.
