There’s two types of people in this world — those who have tried a high five that awkwardly wasn’t reciprocated, and dirty liars. But D’Angelo Russell might even be a third type, whose embraces his high fives that don’t go as planned even more than the successful ones.
That’s a textbook, grade-A recover right there. You’ve gotta be aware of your surroundings to really make this work, and within a split second, Russell realized the only way to save embarrassment would be to five his own self.
Doing it once and have a consistent body of work are two very different things, but here we see Russell continue to impress — a handshake, in this case, but still a form of hand-on-hand greeting that can go terribly awry.
It’s an honor to watch such a true master of his craft.
