Why do basketball players high five with backs of hands?

I've noticed some basketball players, especially the Clippers, high five each other with the backs (not palms) of their hands. Is there a reason for this?

A lot of the swagger or stuff you see in basketball comes from the Michigan Fab Five. I remember seeing the backwards hand slap with them. Also, the black socks, the long shorts, and the street style organized play came from them.

Since then its just stuck. It filtered over into baseball. You see the players going back to the dug out doing it. And really anything that someone might see on the basketball court will filter into other sports. Not just with the basketball players.. oh yeah the stare down by C Webb. another one from the fab five.

In many ways, those guys were emulating Jordan. As is almost the case, those types of things are generally more an evolution than a revolution.

Yeah somewhat. They both were happening around the same time.

I see ESPN reran the fab five documentary last week. In grade school my parents had season tickets to both basketball and football during that era. And what you are saying actually started with UNLV. Michigan didn't even win a conference championship.
