You know the Kiss Cam? That harmless bit many sporting events run between innings or during timeouts, in which a camera operator finds couples sitting in the stands and puts them on the big video screen, trying to get them to kiss? It's a little annoying, but harmless. All in good fun. Unless you are Chris Wilcox. The Boston Celtics center was minding his own business, sitting on the bench during a game against the 76ers in Philadelphia on Friday night when the Kiss Cam operator decided to put him on screen.

The NBA announced new anti-flopping rules for the 2012-13 season Wednesday which will fine repeat offenders. "Flops have no place in our game -- they either fool referees into calling undeserved fouls or fool fans into thinking the referees missed a foul call," said Stu Jackson, executive vice president of basketball operations. "Accordingly, both the board of governors and the competition committee felt strongly that any player who the league determines, following video review, to have committed a flop should -- after a warning -- be given an automatic penalty.

The Lakers' Phil Jackson is among four NBA coaches nominated to lead the U.S. men's basketball team through an Olympic qualifying tournament next summer and, if successful, at the 2004 Athens Games -- but there's a catch. USA Basketball officials said Tuesday they hadn't spoken to Jackson about the job, for which Philadelphia's Larry Brown, Utah's Jerry Sloan and Miami's Pat Riley are also being considered. And whoever accepts the challenge of restoring the luster tarnished by the U.S.

The New York Knicks fired Coach Stu Jackson Monday and hired John MacLeod, who vowed to take a "realistic approach" toward the struggling team. The Knicks, whose record is 7-8 overall, 3-5 at home, have been criticized for lack of discipline and spark. MacLeod, who coached the Phoenix Suns for 14 seasons and the Dallas Mavericks for three, ranks fifth among active NBA coaches with 675 victories. He was fired early last season by Dallas.

Instead of honing his swing this off-season, Miguel Cabrera focused on getting sober. "My drinking was a problem, and I feel good without it. I feel like a new man," he said Thursday. The Detroit Tigers slugger spent three months in an outpatient treatment program for alcoholism following a much-publicized drinking binge during the final weekend of last season, a program that General Manager Dave Dombrowski said will continue into spring training and the upcoming season.

David Stern, Commissioner National Basketball Assn. 475 Park Ave. New York, NY Dear David, I have a joke for you: What would you call you and the rest of your vast legal staff in the NBA office at the bottom of the sea? A good start. Just kidding, more or less. I actually have great respect for the way you've run this league, except for this one tiny little thing: Can you stop messing around with our playoffs? Are you out of your cotton-picking mind?

Apparently not a fan of vendettas or witch hunts, the NBA struck back against Phil Jackson and his employers. Jackson and the Lakers' organization were each fined $50,000 by the NBA on Thursday for Jackson's public accusation that the league had a "vendetta" and was conducting a "witch hunt" in its string of disciplinary actions toward Kobe Bryant. Jackson, who makes $10 million annually, expressed a degree of regret after a brief surge of humor. "They fined me?"

The NBA is no longer merely disciplining Kobe Bryant, it is conducting a "witch hunt" against the Lakers' superstar, Coach Phil Jackson said. Jackson's accusatory words were delivered at the Lakers' El Segundo practice facility Tuesday, a day after NBA officials had taken disciplinary action against Bryant for the third time in six weeks for striking an opposing player on the court. Jackson's remarks could result in a fine.

Phil Jackson was angry Tuesday. First, he called a meeting after practice. It included any Laker who had played at least 20 minutes Monday night and, according to some of those players, the coach gave them a good going over. When he met with reporters, he said, "Hope you enjoyed spending time with the players. That's all I have to say." And he walked away. This on the day after a Laker victory. No Laker was complaining about the victory, however.
