New Zealand started off their game against Team USA at the FIBA World Cup with the traditional Haka dance and the American players looked a little perplexed by what exactly was going on.

While you could attack NBA players for their lack of worldliness (if watching YouTube videos of Haka dances counts as worldliness), but these guys have played in a lot of basketball games in their lives and this is probably the first time they have ever been danced at during warmups.
