Video Quiz 1: Celebration Sign Language

The start of a mini-series of quizzes on the Warriors’ sign language when celebrating baskets.

NBA: Finals-Golden State Warriors at Cleveland Cavaliers
Bench mob!
David Richard-USA TODAY Sports

The Warriors are famous for celebrating their baskets and special plays. Some of them are spontaneous and weird, like this odd Zaza Pachulia move.

(Even this weird Georgian pony dance was a shout out to a Kevin Durant celebration.)

But for a surprising number of celebrations, there is a specific meaning to the signs. They form a simple sign language that the players use to signal to each other that they recognize and appreciate specific types of plays.

So here is the first question, with a challenge extra credit problem.

Question 1 (1 pt). What is the precise type of play being celebrated by these bench signs?

Extra Credit (3 pts): identify the EXACT game that the second one is from.

Answers coming tomorrow.
