After a basketball game, opponents often gather to shake hands and hug.
The practice normally disappears in the playoffs, but is revived when the series is final.
LeBron James did not participate after advancing to the second round.
The Los Angeles Laker went to the locker room with still more than 14 seconds remaining on the clock during a decisive Game 6.

The Lakers dominated the Memphis Grizzlies, 125-85, in Game 6 to win the series 4-2. And at least one member of the Grizzlies gave James his fair share of trash before and during the series.
Days before it was official that the Lakers and Grizzlies would meet in the first round, the Grizzlies’ Dillon Brooks accepted the challenge, and his pounding continued throughout the series.
Dillon and James exchanged words with 8:06 remaining in the third quarter of Game 2 after James hit two baskets in a row. Brooks said James called him «dumb» for committing his fourth foul.
«I don’t care. He’s old. I was looking forward to that,» Brooks said after the game when asked about the trade. «I expected him to do that in Game 4, Game 5. I wanted to say something when I got my fourth foul. I should have said it sooner.»
«I prick bears. I don’t respect anyone until they come and give me 40 [points].»
James brushed off those comments, saying he «wasn’t here for the bulls—«.
LEBRON JAMES SENDS CRYPTIC SONG LYRICS ON SOCIAL MEDIA AFTER KNOCKING GRIZZLIES FROM PLAYOFFS
Brooks was ejected in Game 3 after an unintentional strike to the groin by James.
James, who usually stays away from social media during the playoffs, took to Twitter and Instagram to tweet cryptic rap lyrics that may or may not have been directed at the Grizzlies, who were the No. 2 seed in the West. The Lakers are the seventh seed.
«If you ever see me fighting in the woods with a grizzly bear, HELP THE BEAR.» he wrote, quoting a bar by rapper Mystikal. She also tweeted the lyrics to JAY-Z’s 2006 hit «Trouble.»
