In many ways, NBA media day is like the first day of school. Everybody catches each other up on what they’ve been doing all summer. They’ve all lost weight, added muscle and improved their skills. This year’s class may not get through an entire season 100 percent, but they believe they can help each other ace this season’s test, and to get there they must take it one quiz at a time. Their teachers — or, in this case, their teams’ public relations departments — try to ease the tension with a series of ice-breaking exercises. Nobody wants to be there, everyone looks ridiculous, and in the end, it’s enough to unite everyone around the idea that they’re better off just getting down to business.
Before we break for the season, here is each team’s weirdest, best and/or most awkward moments from one of those ice-breaking exercises — the photo shoot. Click through the slideshow for the captions and try to top them in the comment section.
