LeBron James has been fined $15,000 by the NBA after his obscene 'big balls dance' celebration during La Lakers win against Indiana Pacers earlier this week.
The Lakers were taken to overtime by the Pacers on Thursday night, before going on to win the match 124-116, in the middle of a week of mixed results for them.
There was controversy during the match when LeBron got two fans ejected from courtside after being heckled by them about his son, with the game being stopped in order to get rid of the offenders.
However the King was involved in more controversy as he celebrated scoring with something called the 'big balls dance,' with the 36-year-old grabbing his junk in a way Diego Simeone would have been proud of.
James' behaviour spilled outside of the game as well, with the four time NBA championship warned for his language with the media.
A statement from the league said, "Los Angeles Lakers forward LeBron James has been fined $15,000 for making an obscene gesture on the playing court and warned for using profane language during media availability in response to league imposed discipline, it was announced today by Byron Spruell, President, League Operations.
"The incident occurred with 1:17 remaining in the fourth quarter of the Lakers’ 124-116 overtime win against the Indiana Pacers on Nov. 24 at Gainbridge Fieldhouse."
The game against the Pacers was the first one back for LeBron after he picked up a one game suspension, and missed out on the loss against the New York Knicks.
That suspension came from the game against Detroit Pistons, when James left the Pistons' forward Isaiah Stewart bleeding from his face.

Stewart was fuming at what he perceived to be a very calculated elbow from the four time NBA MVP and rushed at James, only to be held back.
Clearly the former Cleveland Cavaliers player didn't believe he was to blame for the incident, calling the suspension "some bull****."
All that in the space of a week!
