Sometimes a kiss is just a kiss. But it's also apparently a foul.
At least that's what was decided at Thursday night's Game 1 of the West finals between the Phoenix Mercury and Minnesota Lynx. The two teams' star players -- Minnesota's Seimone Augustus and Diana Taurasi for Phoenix -- had a heated exchange that ended, for some reason, with Taurasi giving Augustus a peck on the cheek.
Both players were assessed a foul. The Lynx went on to win 85-62.
