Personalized handshake lines have become a common fixture during NBA player introductions. Players go down the line and give each other individualized dap before the opening tip off. It drives some adults crazy, but the kids love it.
In Charlotte, North Carolina, the coolest teacher ever, Barry White, Jr. gives his 5th grade students a chance to start their day just like their favorite NBA stars. Before his class, he greets each of them with their own personalized handshake to get hyped for what has to be the coolest class ever.
His line is about twice as long as a 12-man NBA lineup, but somehow he’s still able to flawlessly execute.
White said he got the idea after watching King James dap up the Cleveland lineup, and thought it would be a good way to get his students engaged and excited for his class. He discusses the importance of gaining his students trust to deliver his teaching “content” as he describes it. Dude gets it.
No offense to LeBron, but this lineup is 1,000 times cooler than anything the Cavs do. And, White’s job is 1,000 times more important.
