Dwight Howard and Jeremy Lin were just having a good old time on Tuesday night during a game between the Atlanta Hawks and the Brooklyn Nets. But then Lin had to try to high-five Dwight, and it all went tumbling downhill.
Lin, who wasn’t suited for the game due to a lingering hamstring issue, was standing on the sideline as Howard walked toward the Nets bench after a dead ball. The two exchanged a jovial greeting, then Lin stuck out his hand to catch a slap from Howard.
Howard and Lin were teammates on the Houston Rockets and were obviously just playing around.
Still, it was hilarious to see Dwight stunt on Lin and the auditory reaction from the Brooklyn crowd was great.
