The Thunder's handshake situation has been pretty bizarre so far this season. On the one hand, it seems as though they have a series of intricate handshakes that they like to do before games. On the other, they struggle to connect on the most basic of handshakes on the bench. We saw it a few weeks back when Russell Westbrook and Jeremy Lamb suffered a missed connection on a handshake. And last night, we saw it again when Westbrook shook the hand of every single person in the entire OKC organization after checking out of a game against the Suns—except Kevin Durant!


If this team is going to make a serious run in the playoffs, they're going to have to get better at doing the little things. Like shaking one another's hand! C'mon, guys. This is stuff you should have learned in the third grade. Get it together!
