Diana Taurasi and Seimone Augustus are two elite women’s basketball players and longtime friends going back to their AAU days. The two got into a disagreement on the court Thursday night during a WNBA game, and Taurasi can be seen jawing and then bumping Augustus twice before a referee stepped in. Augustus wasn’t backing down.
After the second bump, the referee blew his whistle and the two former No. 1 picks came face-to-face, apparently exchanging words. At that point, Taurasi, squashing the skirmish with perhaps some levity, gave Augustus a peck on the cheek.
