This Weird NBA Phenomenon Will Make You Mildly Uncomfortable

    So, is the NBA a simulation, or...?

    In recent years, people have noticed NBA players moving in perfect synchrony. For example, look at the Phoenix Suns taking off running at the exact same time.

    Or Trevor Ariza and Chris Paul on the bench, mirroring each other's actions.

    There was the time Ricky Rubio and Derrick Favors removed their warm-up shirts in sync.

    And Tony Parker and Manu Ginobili simultaneously did a disappointed clap on the bench.

    Anthony Davis and Demarcus Cousins once dropped their heads and began jogging at the exact same time.

    Dwight Powell and Dennis Smith Jr. ran and leapt with extended hands at exactly the same time.

    Draymond Green and Klay Thompson stopped to tie their sneakers at the exact same time.

    Three Golden State Warriors expressed their dissatisfaction with a foul call in sync.

    And Kevin Love even got in sync with a referee.

    This synchronized moment was particularly interesting, because it's Doc and Austin Rivers — a father and son, sharing the same frustrated reaction.

    As these mesmerizing occurrences continue to happen, NBA fans seem to be watching closer, waiting for synchronized moments during games, and even afterwards, in the postgame handshakes.
