NBA says 'No Handshakes'

Maybe LeBron James had it right afterall.  The NBA, in an attempt to quell health risks involving H1N1 and other hazards has reportedly adopted a 'No Handshake Policy'. 

Instead, players and coaches have been asked to greet each other via more sanitary means of contact, like fist pounding, or maybe chest bumps.

Maybe LeBron was ahead of the curve when he deciding against shaking hands with the Orlando Magic after Game 6 of the Eastern Conference Finals.
