Steven Adams shakes his own hand after getting blown off (Video and GIF)


The Oklahoma City Thunder defeated the Los Angeles Clippers on Thursday night. As the game was ending, Thunder center Steven Adams tried to shake Clippers center Byron Mullens’ hand. Apparently Mullens didn’t feel like participating, accepting the gesture, or generally displaying good sportsmanship.

Some where New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady is excited to learn that he isn’t the only one being left hanging. Of course in Brady’s case it was his own teammate, wide receiver Julian Edelman.

Though personally I feel Adams handled the snub better than Brady. Instead he decided to shake his own hand, he even gave himself some kind of fancy secret hand shake it looks off and walks off.

In Mullens defense it doesn’t look like he ever looks Adams’ way. So there is the very real possibility that he never saw Adams extend his hand. Mullens has also been upset about his playing time. He has been averaging 9.3 minutes per game this season and played just 5 on Thursday night. He didn’t play at all on Wednesday night.
