As you likely know by now, Dwyane Wade was fined $25K yesterday by the NBA for his “throat slashing” gesture after hitting the game clinching shot against the Celtics on Thursday. Wade knew the move would likely cost him some money and tried to apologize on twitter but the league still handed down the fine.


The fine apparently came at a bad time for Wade as today is his wife’s birthday. Wade took to Instagram to show Gabrielle some love but to also explain why he couldn’t afford to buy her anything due to the money he just gave the NBA.

Check the gallery! You’ll be amazed at how many people are in his comments not realizing he is joking.
