As the Bucks were knocking off the Celtics last Friday night, Caron Butler celebrated a big bucket with the “Sam Cassell big balls dance.”

The league doesn’t like that gesture and is cracking down — Butler was fined $15,000 by the league Wednesday for the dance.

He’s not the first, Andray Blatche of the Nets got the same fine for the same dance over the weekend.

While you and I may find this dance amusing, the image conscious NBA — trying to appeal to families and all — is not amused and is going to keep bringing down the hammer until this dance is only seen on YouTube.

    Tough Juice is now getting some “tough love”. As a Wizards fan, it’s hard not to see the connection where the two guys cited are of the “Class of Gilbert Arenas Knuckleheads” school of behavior.
