Dwyane Wade Fined For Throat-Slash Gesture, Apologizes on Twitter


It seems like Dwyane Wade’s victorious homecoming debut in Chicago, may have cost him.

According to reports, the NBA fined Wade $25,000 for making a throat-slash gesture at the end of the Bulls’ game on Thursday. The gesture came after Wade drained a clutch 3-pointer with 26.3 seconds left to seal the deal. However, since then, the former Miami Heat superstar took to twitter to apologize.

“I wanna apologize to my young fans on my gesture at the end of last nights game,” Wade tweeted. “I was caught up in the emotions of my first game at home.”

Sources say, the NBA veteran did not speak to reporters after Friday’s practice. However, the team’s coach said that Wade didn’t do much, in an effort to keep him healthy for the season.

The Bulls beat the Celtics, 105-99 on Thursday. The team returns to the their home court on Saturday to take on the Indiana Pacers at 8 p.m.
