If you’ve attended an NBA game in the last ten years, you might have seen a “kiss cam” trying to get lovely couples to kiss in the crowd.
Last Friday, the Philadelphia 76ers kiss cam attempted to get some love from Boston Celtics forwards Chris Wilcox and Jared Sullinger.
The fine folks over at NJ.com have the details of what went down:
The Sixers have a Kiss Cam during the third quarter of every game. Usually, it spans the arena showing couples (or not) who smooch on the big board for the crowd. The gag concludes when the camera pans to the opposing bench, where players usually laugh, fake kiss or just ignore the camera. Boston’s Chris Wilcox had a slightly different and less appropriate reaction. Wilcox greeted the 17,921 Wells Fargo Center fans with his middle finger. He was serenaded by boos and received an earful from an assistant coach moment’s later. He might get a letter from commissioner David Stern too.
Wilcox ended up getting fined 25K by the league but I guess showing Philly fans the bird might have been worth it.
