After a win against the New Orleans Pelicans, Kyrie Irving and Kevin Love performed a Celebratory Handshake. It had a very interesting ending ,which kinda sent a wrong impression to a lot of people in the NBA community.
Here is a clip where it all started:
Chris Haynes of Cleveland Cavaliers Later explained:
At the conclusion of their choreographed handshake, each placed his right hand near the corner of his mouth with his thumb and index finger together. It was interpreted by many as symbolizing smoking a marijuana joint.The video made the rounds. On Tuesday night, the Cavaliers released a statement in an attempt to clarify what the end of that handshake represented.“To clarify, they are quickly sharpening the end of an imaginary mustache at the end of their exchange with each other. It has nothing to do with smoking a joint as some blogs (and even some mainstream folks now) are suggesting/reporting.”
Well whatever the handshake meant for them, they are certainly at a good spot. Kevin Love scoring 22 points and 5 rebounds, shooting 7-13 from the field, 6-9 from three point land. Kyrie Irving Scoring 32 points and 9 assist 11-21 from the field, 4-7 of that came from downtown. This shows that they are capable of working together, winning games, while having a little fun on the sideline.
