The Kevin Love-Wesley Johnson handshake whiff from last week has already burned up the InterWebs, so kudos to the Timberwolves for addressing this mega-scandal head on:

hilarious!!! too bad the team sucks!
love spends too much time with milkshakes rather than handshakes
hahaha, i was looking in the beginning and i was like is this guy serious
very funny vid wolves, to bad beasley wasnt in it talking about his handshake nightmares with the heat xD
Really funny! The team definitely does not suck, it has allot of potential. First thing to improve? Coaching! But team unity – really good it seems
LoL That was great! Two thumbs up!
lol that is some funny stuff glad to see that the nba has a sense of humor in their videos
Beasley scoring at will, 30-30 games, now this. I am slowly becoming a T-Wolves fan.
O Relax, media blows everything out of proportion. Just play the game, and when you’re tired, your tired. They should just laugh it off. What’s next, technical foul for delay of game because handshakes take too long? and then all of a sudden no handshakes ahahahha
lol funny it just shows how the team chemistry is so good just by shaking hands :D
LMAO! This was the funniest!
Lol, that’s so funny. They’ll get the hang of it, I’m not too worried about it :-p
Anyone notice the smiley face on the top right corner?
Anybody notice the smiley face on the top right corner of this page?
That mystified us for a few weeks until I found this:
It just means that our web stats tracking is working properly in Word Press.
Lol. Maybe this is why the wolves are so bad. They should probably be focusing on basketball more than making pointless videos. I’m glad I’m not a fan of these clowns. 31 and 31 is great, but 3-8 record isn’t.
LMAO!!! This was a funny piece. I love it. Still laughing! :D
relax, its just a handshake. not that serious… the twolves got more important issues to deal with
Please tell me that you didn’t take that video seriously… if so… joke’s on you!
well thats stupied they have to practice a simple handshake
That was hilarious! At first I too was like “is this guy for real?” I just want to give credit to the originality of the video and say job well done. It made me laugh and the world could always use more of that.
This was amazeballs. I can’t stop laughing. LMAO!!!!!!!!!!!
werent most of those high fives nd not handshakes?
Fantastic mini insite on the handshake. Always wondered about its importance and how it effects the mind set during a game. Thanks!
I dont think it was awkward, it was funny though. Why awkward, it was unintentional, the guy is a rookie, you dont know what is going on in his mind not that it is an excuse. I vaguely remember some guy went into the court before taking off his sweat shirt,…or even what about Kobe acting like a spoiled child when Phil called a time out towards the end of the game? If it was some bickering team stars (like Shaq and Kobe in LA) then it worth talking about it but c’mon is there nothing to talk about the Wolves but the ‘airhandshake’? I cant believe the team broadcaster’s analysis, is he serious? Just a rok mistake on focusing on what is going on the court, nothing malicious..
I want them to continue missing the handshake at the free throw line on purpose from now on…lol.
If the T-Wolves or anyone associated with the team sees this post…please tell them to consider.
That was funny, but why do people think its such a big deal. Everybody has their awkward moments! This is just one of them
Hahahaha I loved this. You just gotta laugh at yourself every once in awhile. GOOD CLIP! Also..I think some people really think this vid was serious……….. Idiots….
what was so awkward about that???
Man! It is just an handshake! they are taking a simple thing as a tragedy! Naturally i would have felt bad, but it is not big deal man!
Well, if you don’t get your handshake just learn from andrew bogut
lmao is this a serious video,i mean come on its just a stupid handshake
This was the funniest thing I’ve ever seen
For a sec i thought they were serious, then towards the middle i was like, ohhhh is a joke :P
“One of the most tragic moments in Minnesota sports history”????
Was K-Love being serious or is this his style of humour? Cos if its serious – wow, lighten up Mr Love. If not – its quite funny!!! Right up there with bed wetting in 9th grade and having “the talk” with ur parents!!! LOL :P
Lol this was so funny, like alot of other peeps iwas kinda wondering wether it was serious at first,. But yeah, I really loved this,. :D Nice to see something “diffrent”,.
Nice one T-Wolves! Keep it up! ;p
” You have to get better on the ‘handshake’ part of your game”
Come on man this is ridiculous …. but its pretty funny how everyone is making such a big deal out of it
The most tragic moment in Minnesota Sports History…..lol
That was really cute!
THIS IS SAD. Who cares? This is news because the teams sucks. Plus the only problem is the timberwolves player who is a lazyass.
coaching is good on the wolves. but the players suck besides love and beasly. which are decent supporting players to a star team. but not stars. so coaching is not the problem. just players who themselves chose not to live up to expectations. not on purpose of course. after all its the players that play, not the coaches. yeah i miss all my shots and its my coaches fault. thats a load of bs.
now about the article. i just lost a lot of respect for the guy who did that to love. because what he did was truely disrespectful to a high degree. i hope the guy who did it isnt like what was so wrong about that. cause if he was then dang son you have a lot to learn.
ok i was a little harsh. sorry about that didnt mean to rant or anything. i messed up there.
You shouldn’t be talking about the T’Wolves if you don’t know who Wesley Johnson is he has more potential than probably anyone else on that team. Plus this whole video was a joke and it’s not “disrespectful” to miss on a high five before a foulshout.
I am seriously starting to like Kevin Love nowadays. This is an awesome video. Very funny :)
Only in the NBA. Love it.
I like that piece. very funny. and how you got those two to play along was the guts!….hahahhah@ the practice where they kept missing the handshake and when Love said he pee’d the bed well into 8th grade hhahahaahh
Why is it such a big deal for them? It just a handshake, and they have to get the players to get it down? No wonder why they suck.
haha. that was funny..
kevin love getting shy and all then throwing the ball haha
wes thought love didn’t see him so he went to his spot
rookie and kevin love are one and the same
I love all the attention the wolves are getting this season, yeah they aren’t a top team, but they have amazing chemistry on and off the court, they seem to have fun even when losing, they post big numbers win or lose and they make do with a team or rookies more or less. twolves will always be my team
Lol how stupid is this video
i dont know how the guy is stil in the team
Lol. This is up there with ‘THE ONION’.. Kudos to NBA and the T-wolves for making a great satire.. You really made a lot of people clueless. And , err goodluck on the season…
I think they should have a handshake competition in the All star game. It would be interesting to watch and very entertain. I think everyone would agree that the all star game has become extremely boring. Especially the slam dunk contest. I think they should incorporate some new events. This handshake event would be cheap to organize and it is very entertaining to watch. I have seen some of the NBA players handshakes such as Monta Ellis. His is extremely creative and fun to watch i think this would be a good opportunity to revive the All star game.
This is obviously a joke video. Great job Wolves, I was laughing.
It’s sad how many people in this comment thread thought this was serious =(
Great American education :/ Go to your local library (you can type that in google to find out what it is) and read a book people. Become literate. Please. For the sake of the children.
Wow…some people take this seriously?
T-Wolves need to get better. Since they’ve lost Garnett, their so bad now…even Love can’t heal the pain. Beasley might spark inspiration, but their not gonna make the playoffs.
LOL i thought it was serious for like half the video!!!
I am now a Timberwolves fan.

awesome piece of reporting. in the words of that guy from that tv show, “i like it when we talk about the deep stuff”
Doesn’t really matter. Dude got 31 rebounds, he can do whatever he wants
This is not that big of a deal. So what? Who cares about a handshake? Can we focus on the basketball? People talking about this is the worse thing in timberwolves history…the fact that this made NBA headlines is sad!!!!!
It is awesome, so good to see NBA players take time out to have a bit of a laugh at themselves
I wanna share this on my facebook but i can’t! stupid NBA.com get up to speed with the program here! Make that available! PLEASE!
Man this was too funny! after 31 points & 31 rebs, the rook should be wanting to touch a brother’s hand
