The great Rick Telander once correctly pointed to rise of teammates sharing high-fives between missed free-throws as a possible sign of the Apocalypse. And that is why I’m genuinely concerned how he’ll react to what the Bulls’ Jimmy Butler did tonight in Detroit.
The All-Star guard had the audacity to go in for a high-five from the Pistons’ Marcus Morris after a bricked attempt for the charity stripe. His advances were not accepted.
The End Times draw ever near. Dire consequences for a mildly funny joke.
