Video: Knicks' Lin and Fields have nerdy pregame shake
There are tons of handshake routines in sports. Daps, slaps, pounds, shakes, leaps, and all sorts of varieties in between. Landry Fields and suddenly rising star Jeremy Lin of the Knicks put a unique twist on the idea. Read the book, put on the glasses, adjust the pocket protector.
Lin went to Harvard and Fields is a product of Stanford, hence the "nerdy" aspect of all this. The two also have an off court relationship, with Lin sleeping on Fields' couch until he finds an apartment in New York.
