Puff puff pass? Nah, just a twisting of a 'stache

The media is still clamoring for more information about Kyrie Irving's and Kevin Love's "controversial" hand shake, which some people thought ended with the two pantomiming smoking a joint, so Irving talked a little more about it on Wednesday.

The Cleveland Cavaliers point guard reiterated that they were not pretending to smoke but rather twirling the ends of their mustaches, and they have no intention of stopping the celebration, according to ESPN's Dave McMenamin.

"We're going to do it more now," Irving said with a smile. "This is an awesome handshake we're not going to change. Nothing illegal, nothing we're trying to get across. It's just a simple twist of our mustache right here, that's it."

Irving also added that they share the multi-part greeting with another player on the Cavs, but left him unnamed so that he was not dragged into the hubbub surrounding the shake.
