The NBA is cracking down on excessive expression. Yelling, screaming, getting what they consider to be overly angry can get a player a technical foul. The list of what is unacceptable behavior continues to grow and now that included KISSING!
Last night during the Minnesota Lynx and Phoenix Mercury WNBA game, Diana Taurasi and Seimone Augustus were defending each other when, perhaps, out of mutual respect, they squared up against each other after a play–and kissed each other on the cheek. The referee immediately called technical fouls on them. Watch!
So, the precedent has been set. No kissing on the court!
Somebody needs get the memo to Chris Bosh.
