YOU JUST GOT SERVED: Team USA Stares Blankly As New Zealand Team Performs Ceremonial Haka Dance

  • Jake O'Donnell

The Haka dance is “a thing” down in New Zealand, traditionally performed by their Rugby team, and more traditionally performed by Maori tribesmen before a battle. Their men’s basketball team apparently does it as well, pre-game, before bewildered opponents at the FIBA World Basketball Championships.

Team USA was not scared.

The Americans went on to win 98-71, reminding us of this famous scene from Raiders of the Lost Ark

James Harden, Derrick Rose, and Kenneth Faried have a look on their faces we can only describe as “tripping balls.” Priceless. Good job not cracking the hell up.
