Shotloc Shot of the Week: Eddie House fined $25,000 for paying homage to Sam Cassell

You knew this was coming. Eddie House has been fined $25,000 by the NBA for his “obscene gesture” during yesterday’s Heat/Thunder game — that being his interpretation of the Sam Cassell Big Balls Dance, a.k.a. the Pedro Cerrano Dance.

    unclassy? yes. subject to punishment? it should be. a fine by the league? i’m not so sure. as stupid as house looked, i dont think the league should limit such expressions on the court. it wasn’t truly obscene, i don’t think innocent 8 year olds are any more traumatized or scarred, the vulgarity of it isn’t blatant, and so should be allowed, although frowned upon and made fun of for.

    Stern micro-managing. A fine for that? Really? He made himself look like an ass, but that’s his problem not the leagues.

  • flegman

    house deserves to be fined just for being in the league. I am punished to see him every time I want to watch a Heat game.

    Fuck Eddie House. He reminds me of the piece of shit that you see at any park, Y, gym, etc. who’s sorry as fuck and gets Jay-Z everytime a blue moon appears and they actually contribute sometihing to a team’s chances of winning.

    On yahoo, they were calling Eddie House a thug because of this. LOL. Eddie House? A thug? Thugs everywhere are offended and laughing.

    I don’t think he should’ve been fined. Was Sam fined for this? Stu could’ve simply put in a call or text to Eddie saying, I don’t like it, don’t do it again. Done.

    man yall hating on Eddie House, dude has done this for years…hittin cluth three pointers…i think he just hit those threes on yall teams….my boy is a lakers fan and cant stand him but gets pissed everytime he gets left wide the f*** open cuz you know he can knock down that corner three at the buzzer…

    it wasnt that vulgar that he did that dance. he could have said he was a monkey for all an kid knows. the NBA is way to PC these days…the No Balls Association… Eddie House said he had balls lol

  • Rainman

    Dude left Bron hanging on the hi 5 lol

  • Knicksfan84

    It’s NOT the balls part of it that he’s being fined for. It was the running of the mouth cursing up a storm in front of kids on the sideline by Heat bench. That’s a PROBLEM. I wish the clip showed that part.

  • james Patterson, Jr.

    i didnt know that what it ment.

  • southboy

    You can clown on eddie house..but he can shoot the light out of the gym. Pure Shooter baby

  • Like A Bosh

    @Knicksfan84 — It IS the balls part. The NBA press release said it was an “obscene gesture” not anything about talking.

  • thrilla
