I thought my eyes had deceived me when I saw what appeared a secret handshake that turned into beard grooming before the start of the Houston Rockets game against the LA Clippers.
But no, I was not wrong. Thanks to the Houston Rockets Vine account, they've captured the absolutely crazy pre game ritual shared by James Harden and Chandler Parsons.
I won't spoil it for you, but if you want some idea on the concentration these players have, they don't even look at what they're doing.
I'm not sure how you approach practicing a secret-society style handshake at a training session that owes more to The Simpsons Stonecutters organization, but obviously, the Rockets do.
