Dwyane Wade Executes Flawless Throat Slash

Dwyane Wade was admittedly fired up about his home debut with his hometown Chicago Bulls.

After the former Heat star sank a three against the Boston Celtics to essentially ice the game, he decided to celebrate with a no-no gesture.

That's right, dudes and dudettes.

The forbidden throat slash.

Check this out:

That step-back three was more brutal than the gesture.

The NBA understandably frowns on its players applying Colombian neckties to opponents and responded with a tidy $25,000 fine.

Wade was extremely apologetic afterwards, attributing this gruesome simulation to an 'out of body experience'.

He was particularly concerned about his younger, more impressionable fans.

Obviously, professional sports leagues -- most notably the NFL -- are heavily regulating celebratory acts that even hint at violence.

The NFL has even confiscated imaginary weapons from players, including archery sets from both Josh Norman and Brandin Cooks.

The throat slash has always been favored by many players, as it functions as a sort of violent exclamation point for a great play.

However, the elitist joy thieves in the league office apparently disagree.
