Where do NBA players come up with the ideas for their in-game celebrations? Handshakes, high fives, and choreographed dances are all part of the Association these days.
As for Philadelphia 76ers guard Jimmy Butler, that apparently includes a celebration where he pretends to smoke … something.
After Butler missed a layup on a foul call in the first quarter of Philadelphia’s game against the Los Angeles Lakers on Tuesday night, Amir Johnson walked over to Butler to mime handing the star something.
That’s when Butler mimicked smoking.
Of course Twitter had a field day with the screenshot, mostly combining the photo with proposed Anthony Davis trade suggestions on the idea that only folks who were high could think they were legitimate.
NBA culture is undefeated.
