Hey, did you know that NBA training camps opened yesterday? Yeah, it snuck up on us as well. The NBA season is right around the corner and the directives from the league offices are coming daily.
Just this week there has been reports of the NBA’s new twitter guidelines and now we have their new anti-handshake directive.
And judging from this new directive, it seems that Stuart Scott is now working in the NBA offices. Stuart has kindly dropped by to offer up the news.
Players and coaches have been asked to greet each other via more sanitary means of contact, like fist pounding, or maybe chest bumps.
One can only imagine what Utah’s Jerry Sloan thinks about this.
“No handshaking,” Doc Rivers said. “I think it’s a good thing. A fist pound is just great.”
And in other NBA directive news, next week the NBA will instruct players on the correct way to #2 before and after games. Stay tuned.
