Heat's Eddie House Fined $25,000 for "Crotch-Related Gesture"
The NBA doesn't want you to think about their players' crotches. As far as they are concerned their players don't even have crotches, and any player caught in any way pointing to their crotch apparently gets fined $25,000. That's what happened to the Heat's Eddie House for his "obscene" "crotch-related gesture" in Sunday's game against the Oklahoma City Thunder.
It took us a little while to figure out what House is doing, but enthusiasts of the mime arts will recognize House is signaling that he has such big balls he has to hold them. Yeah, we're not sure we would've even picked up on that if the NBA didn't point it out for us.
