I watched this yesterday and it cracked me up. Two basketball teams got into a bit of a brawl during a game which led to both coaches jumping onto the court. Sounds routine right, expect the coaches didn’t hold the players back; they actually escalated the situation to the point that the players had to hold the coaches back. One guy almost gets his suit jacked ripped off because he’s being so aggressive. Needless to say the coaches didn’t end the game with handshakes, which is what leads to one of the best endings to a game I’ve seen.


I don’t know if I would shake the guys hand but as a coach, you have to keep your cool. When your players are holding you back, you’ve probably gone too far.


Would you shake the other coach’s hand in this situation? ​
