It was the first official game for longtime Miami Heat turned Chicago Bulls guard Dwyane Wade on Thursday night against the Boston Celtics.

With less than 30 seconds to go in the game and the Bulls up by 2 points, Wade knocked down a step-back dagger 3-pointer to seal the victory. After knocking it down, Wade couldn’t help himself, giving a celebratory throat slash as the crowd went crazy.

Wade took to Twitter and apologized for the gesture:

The deed was already done, so the NBA had no choice but to fine him $25,000 for the throat slash.
