This is probably an important signal to know, assuming that you're going to watch tonight's Lakers-Jazz game. After all, as everybody and his or her third cousin has been pointing out lately, Utah commits more fouls than any other team in the league. The best analogy for how the Jazz play defense would be E. Honda's "Hyaku Retsu Harite!" move
* from Street Fighter II
The handchecking signal is pretty easy to recognize. It's just the universal "Talk To The Hand" gesture. Alternately, the referee could simply pretend that he's firing a repulsor ray out of his hand, ala Robert Downey Jr. in Iron Man
. Screaming something like "Avengers assemble!" is entirely optional.
*Hyaku Retsu Harite means "Hundred Hand Slap." Shame on you for not knowing your obscure Asian video game translations. All your base are now belong to me.
