So Chris Wilcox was just fined $25,000 for an "obscene gesture" that he gave the fans in Philly on Friday night. Per Sam Amick's twitter.
Boston's Chris Wilcox fined $25K for "making an obscene gesture directed toward fans during a game.."in Celts' 95-94 loss to 76ers on Fri.

But the hilarious part of all of this is what the obscene gesture was. Apparently as the Sixers panned the crowd for the nightly Kiss cam, they showed Wilcox on the bench. Wilcox then reportedly gave the crowd a "Philadelphia kiss", flipping off the crowd of 17,921.
So yes Wilcox was fined, but honestly the Celts should take up a collection Wednesday night at the Garden for him to recoup his losses. Flipping off anyone from Philly is as natural as it comes, or as Paul Flannery says,
It can be argued that an obscene gesture in Philly is simply exchanging pleasantries in the local custom, but Chris Wilcox was fined 25K.
