Complicated handshakes are serious business in today’s NBA. Gone are the days of a high five and a pat on the butt, NBA players today have choreographed routines that take hours of practice to get right.
Last night during the NBA Awards show, Drake and Will Ferrell appeared in a sketch as the newest NBA Handshake Coaches to help get everyone’s greeting game on point.
The ran through some hilarious trademark dap like “The Jenga.” “The Prom,” and my personal favorite, “The Obi Won Kenobi” – where Ferrell disappears from his track suit after being slain by Drake’s invisible light saber.
I’m not a fan of Drake as a rapper – because he’s overrated – but this is good.
The handshake game is strong with @Drake & Will Ferrell 👊
