Paul Pierce Fined $15k For Throwing Gum (Video Included)

Chris Forsberg reports for ESPN Boston: “The NBA fined Celtics captain Paul Pierce $15,000 Saturday for throwing an object into the stands during Tuesday’s triumph over the Indiana Pacers. The incident occurred with 8:02 remaining in the first quarter of Boston’s 95-83 win over the Indiana Pacers at Conseco Fieldhouse. Pierce picked up his second foul on a questionable call and, while returning to the bench, threw his gum into the stands. According to someone in the stands, it appeared Pierce threw the gum directly at a fan, hence the hefty fine.”

    “According to someone in the stands…” Really don’t need much of an accusation to get fined.
