Has the basketball star created the latest craze? INPHO/Getty Images

WATCH: LeBron's awkward post-dunk celebration

The basketball star appeared to reject the opportunity to high-five an adoring fan.

IN A MOMENT of athletic ecstasy, did LeBron James lose his sense of sight? Did he forget the fundamentals of the handshake? Or, as The Basketball Jones hypothesises, did he actually create the latest craze?

Those are just a few of the questions we are asking after seeing this clip of LeBron lobbing a ball off the backboard – from the three-point line, no less – and slamming it through the rim.

It’s what followed next that has us confused.

See that excited lady eager to high-five the basketball star? LeBron didn’t. Or he did. It isn’t clear.

All that matters is the awkward hand-touching that happened next.
