The Cleveland Cavaliers have started the season in blistering form as they have powered to a 6-0 start to leave them 1.5 games ahead of second-placed Charlotte already. 

Following their inaugural title success in the summer, the Cavs have shown no signs of a championship hangover as they have come out with focus and intensity on a nightly basis. 

Their camaraderie has been clear for all to see. The dressing room problems and player chemistry issues that plagued them under former head coach David Blatt have been eradicated. 

Tyronn Lue has instilled a togetherness within the organisation that has made them tougher to beat, and their handshakes - while being a minor element of chemistry and an insignificant factor in a game of basketball - have taken the internet by storm.

The NBA has always been a place of creative handshakes, but the Cavs have taken it to a new level. One of the highlights from their ring ceremony was seeing all the players run through their individual handshakes with each member of the team. 

If you were wondering, yes, each member of the franchise does have their own handshake, so that's 14 shakes for each player to remember - that's pretty impressive. 

House of Highlights recently posted a video on Instagram showing some of the Cavs' handshakes, and they are great. If you've got a minute, it's well worth the watch. But the best part of the video? The mascot taking off his shirt for J.R. Smith.
