Watch an NBA game and you’ll often see a reoccurring offense. Players, completely in their own clouds, missing out on giving their teammates high fives or handshakes.

The worst offenders usually come at the free thrown line, something the guy sat 2K Sports took notice of and implemented into the newest version of their annual basketball title, NBA 2K.

As you can see below, Eric Gordon of the New Orleans Pelicans steps to the line and knocks down his first free throw. Gordon then steps into the lane to give some love to teammate (Ryan Anderson?!) before attempting to do the same to Anthony Davis. Only problem? Davis doesn’t see it, but that’s not even the best part.

After Gordon is left hanging, virtual Davis realizes it and attempts to give him a handshake. Except then Gordon doesn’t see Davis’ efforts. Then he does, but Davis had already began making his way back to the line. But then Davis sees, and well, you get the picture.

It’s the detail that makes these games great and 2K knows what they’re doing.
