Is This The Weirdest Signature Celebration In Pro Sports?

DeShawn Stevenson can't feel his face. And he hasn't been able to feel it for many years.

Stevenson does that because it's supposed to represent him not being able to feel his face. He has literally been doing this for at least five years, as this Dan Steinberg exegesis from 2007 clearly indicates. The move remains just so completely weird. Stevenson's a weird guy, after all — for at least part of last year, he had an ATM machine in his kitchen — so it's not exactly a surprise, but the fact that he's kept this whole thing going through four different teams — the Wizards, the Mavericks, the Nets, and the Hawks — is actually kind of impressive.

Check out the shot, the celebration, and the announcers' bemused discussion here.
