Last season, the Washington Nationals began the season with the Handshake Cam, rather than the more intimate Kiss Cam. After all, the Kiss Cam has become controversial. For instance, they don't use it in WNBA to avoid having to show two women kissing.
For awhile, the Washington Wizards took the opposite approach to the same-sex Kiss Cam: they purposely target two people of the same gender.
To create maximum embarrassment for the players in a league that has not ever had an active player who has publicly admitted to being gay (out of the 3,600 players in the history of the NBA), the camera focuses on two players of the opposing team.
However, the Wizards will not use the same-sex Kiss Cam next year, reports Kyle Weidie.
