VIDEO: Sixers’ Tobias Harris, Kyle O’Quinn remind everyone to sanitize with new handshake
Coronavirus or COVID-19 is the latest disease that is affecting plenty of people throughout the world, and it’s definitely affecting the NBA. As the league considers its options in the coronavirus pandemic, Sixers teammates Tobias Harris and Kyle O’Quinn had a fun way to remind fans to protect themselves.
Ahead of the Philadelphia 76ers-Golden State Warriors game at Chase Center, the two managed to integrate a subtle reminder to sanitize during their pre-game handshakes. Harris mimicked holding a sanitizer bottle, and his Sixers buddy more than happily got a squeeze or two to wash his hands.
SB Nation’s Brady Klopfer had the moment on record, and it was definitely one of the most amusing and well-meant actions done on the floor.

The league is considering banning fans from attending games in the name of public safety, but people have mixed feelings about this — with LeBron James even saying he will not play if that happens.
However, while the league’s next actions are still unsure, it’s nice to know that a talented player like Tobias Harris is making an effort to remind everyone to stay safe.
