NEW YORK (AP) -- The NBA has fined Oklahoma City star Kevin Durant for making a ''menacing gesture,'' when he pretended to slice his throat after throwing down a big dunk during the Thunder's victory against the Golden State Warriors.

 

Thunder guard Russell Westbrook blocked Stephen Curry's layup, and Durant corralled the ball and went in for a soaring dunk at the other end of the court. He then made throat-slashing gesture and crossed his hands in prayer.

 

''Kill 'em and pray for 'em after the game,'' Durant said.

 

''It's nothing against the team I'm playing against,'' Durant added. ''Come out with a mindset and be friends after the game.''

This was the play:

 

 

Funny too that the same league that fined him for this still released the video itself and didn't even remove the incident.

Yet Joey Crawford can dance across the court like a jackass every time he makes a foul call.

Another reason to be excited for David Stern's retirement next year.
