The NBA fined Los Angeles Lakers star LeBron James $15,000 for making an obscene gesture on the court while celebrating a made basket late in the fourth quarter of his team's overtime win against the Indiana Pacers, the league announced Friday.

James used the "big balls" dance made famous by Sam Cassell after draining a deep 3-pointer.

The NBA has fined players who use the celebration, dating back to the 2010-11 season. Toronto Raptors guard Fred VanVleet was recently fined $15,000 for making the same gesture.
