Brooklyn Nets center DeAndre Jordan shows off his awesome and hilarious pregame routine with each of the team’s starters.
On Saturday night, the Brooklyn Nets traveled to Chicago to take on the struggling Bulls. At 4-7, the Nets needed a big win to help put themselves in a better position in the Eastern Conference.
However, before the opening tip even occurred, reserve center DeAndre Jordan caught the eye of many with his pregame routine.
Before the starters went onto the court, Jordan had some sort of act with each of them. These acts ranged from a creative handshake to portraying a bouncer and checking Spencer Dinwiddie off of an imaginary guest list.

Jordan’s pregame routine, arguably, is what helped the Nets go out onto the court and oust their opponent by a score of 117-111. Brooklyn was led by Dinwiddie, who had a team-high 24 points on 46% shooting from the field (5-for-11). Harris also dropped 22 points and racked up a game-high eight assists.
Jordan, in 26 minutes off the bench, dropped seven points, snatched seven rebounds, and dished out four assists. He did this on 50% shooting from the field (2-for-4). Jordan also blocked four shots in the victory.
The Nets are now 5-7 on the year, sitting in ninth place in the Eastern Conference. Their next game will be Monday night against the Indiana Pacers at 7:30 p.m. ET. It’s still unclear if they’ll have Irving back in the lineup for that matchup.
