Chicago guard Dwyane Wade was fined $25,000 by the NBA on Friday for making a throat slashing gesture after hitting a late 3-pointer in his Bulls debut Thursday night.

Wade got the ball in the corner, took a dribble to his left and stepped back for the 3-pointer. He made the gesture after the ball swished through the net, and then jumped around as the crowd roared.

Wade apologized earlier today on Twitter:

Wade finished with 22 points in the Bulls’ 105-99 home victory over the Boston Celtics.
