#celtics forward Chris Wilcox fined $25,000 for obscene gesture during timeout in Friday's loss to #sixers. Much more to this storyabout 3 hours ago via Twitter for BlackBerry®ReplyRetweetFavorite@GwashNBAGlobegary washburn Apparently the #sixers Kiss Cam zeroed in on Wilcox and Jared Sullinger and Wilcox put up his hand to block the camera. Some claim it wasabout 3 hours ago via Twitter for BlackBerry®ReplyRetweetFavorite@GwashNBAGlobegary washburn The one-finger salute. Sullinger told me after the game that it wasn't after he received text messages from friends asking about the gestureabout 3 hours ago via Twitter for BlackBerry®ReplyRetweetFavorite@GwashNBAGlobegary washburnThis Chris Wilcox incident reminds me of the time Kevin Garnett flipped off someone, I believe it was Joey Crawford, while KG played for the Minnesota Timberwolves. I can remember watching it with all my cousins; the whole room went silent for about two seconds before we all asked, eyes wide, “Did you see the length of that middle finger?”Pictures of KG’s middle finger exist online (see below), but they aren’t as impressive as my memory. In my mind, I swear his middle finger was at least the size of a 3-iron when he used it to flip off Crawford (or whoever else it might have been). Sadly, the moment doesn’t exist on YouTube so I can’t share it. You’ll have to trust me; that day, at least, KG’s middle finger was like E.T.’s on steroids.Two relatively recent photos will have to suffice, but I swear they don’t do KG’s middle finger justice.
