Kevin Durant fined $25K for throat slicing gesture vs. Warriors (Video)

One of the best plays you will see in the NBA this season has resulted in $25,000 out of Kevin Durant’s pocket.

Last night vs. the Golden State Warriors, Russell Westbrook ferociously blocked Stephen Curry from behind igniting a fast break which Durant capped off with a big slam dunk.

After the slam, Durant did a little Mortal Kombat move with a throat slicing gesture.

This continues the pretty odd season for Durant in which he started picking up way more technicals and basically living up to the saying “KD is not nice.”

The gesture is something that you should expect to get a fine for. It pretty much crosses the line and Durant took it too far.

Somehow, it looks like Durant just did this in the heat of the moment and didn’t really think about it. Who knew this kind of move was something that could come out of Durant after a play like that?

The play was really amazing though and this fine lets us focus on that just a little bit more. It’s the kind of play that you really only see in Thunder games because they have the likes of Durant and Westbrook to pull it off.

But now KD is $25K poorer.
