You might think this is more evidence that LeBron James is a huge jerk. That he can’t even be bothered to celebrate a dunk with a fan at a charity game when the lady clearly wants to take him to Boomtown.

But personally, I think this is LeBron inventing a new handshake/high-five maneuver we’ve never seen before. It’s called “The Eel” and it’s a direct descendant of the Chemical Brothers’ “Salmon Dance.”

All you have to do is refuse to give someone a fist pound but let them grab your arm and shake it so that it looks like you have an eel attached to your shoulder. It’s going to be huge.

  1. I think that’s his mom. Don’t know if that makes it better or worse.

  2. lololol that was painful to watch

  3. Looks a lot like his mom. Nice dunk, worst handshake ever. lol

  4. Looks like he went into a fugue state after that dunk.

  5. it’s all swagger, he’s all like what what what, i just dunked it. not really thinking about handshakin’ more about acting on what he did.

  6. One of the funniest things I ever read, though it was horrible as usual to see BDL talk about exactly everything you write in your posts though.

    But it gets TBJ traffic and I’m all for that!

  7. Just like the multi,multi,multi millionaire,(arrogant) greed mongers that cant accept the money owners who invested their millions are offering.NBA players are grossely overpaid, and in general think the world owes them a living. Who needs Lebron James?not I.This women regardless of who she is deserves more respect.You cant give what you dont have, for those cheering you on.

  8. Lebron totally ignored the lady because he didn’t want to share his moment with anyone, and you’re acting like he invented a handshake. Wake up.

  10. what a jack a** he could not even shake her hand that shows how full of sh*t he is

  11. It that’s his mom, she looks kinda hot, I might have to take her out for a drink or 2.

  12. That’s wasn’t necessary….that was just a normal person congratulating him in the moment. If he is that press hungry….wow! That was just rude. Baller or not….not cool….

  13. fuck you all. Americans are so fucking gay

  14. I don’t think he should be shaking anybodys hands with the way how ppl talk about him.

  15. inventing a new handshake? he obviously just don’t want to but the lady grabbed his hand so he just let her do whatever.. are you blind or can you not see the look on his face? his expression obviously tells everything.. looks like being a fanatic makes you blind for reality..

  16. K really you all need to calm down and quit acting like LeBron is a bad Guy. He dunked the ball and reacted with some swag. He didn’t try to offend someone or all of y’all. He’s playing charity games and all you ppl can say is he is arrogant and selfish. Grow up and enjoy the show. Quit hating on the Guy because he is better if than you
    That’s not just stupid but its a shame that such great talent is hated

  18. The only thing this idiot could be king of is the “king of douchebags” Lechoke James

  19. lol people think that “new handshake” thing was meant seriously..

  20. I guess I see things differently, but it looked to me like he didn’t want to shake hands.

  21. No, that’s not his Mother. She is shorter and thin. Saw her in S.A.Tx. one year when he was playing basketball game…
