Here's something you don't see every day: a star player high-fiving opposing team's assistant coach after making a big shot. It happened in the third quarter of the Golden State Warriors' 113-109 victory against the New Orleans Pelicans on Tuesday when Stephen Curry hit a wild, turnaround jumper near the Pelicans' bench.
Watch Curry take a moment to greet former Warriors assistant Darren Erman before getting back on defense:
This was easy to miss when marveling at the degree of difficulty on that jumper, but it's pretty funny. I like the fact that Erman didn't leave him hanging.
"Obviously I know him very well," Curry said, via the San Jose Mercury News' Anthony Slater. "He was telling, I think, Jrue [Holiday], while I'm shooting, he's yelling out, 'If he makes it, it's a good shot, if he makes it, it's a good shot,' trying to encourage their defense. So I wanted a little praise for that good shot and he gave it to me. He was a good sport."
