Hand slaps after made free throws are now a habit in the NBA. Hand slaps after missed free throws are also now, unfortunately, par for the course. And, you know, they are fine and harmless. I could channel my best Andy Rooney and point out how ridiculous they are, but I won’t. What I will suggest, however, is that hurting a teammate with an overly aggressive hand slap after a bricked attempt from the charity stripe — as Philadelphia’s Richaun Holmes did to Dario Saric tonight –is a very bad idea.
This belongs on every blooper reel until the end of time.
