Apparently the New Zealand team does this to intimidate opponents before every game. Check out the reaction of the US players. Priceless.

Enjoy :D

P.S. U.S. won 98-71, so our guys weren't very intimidated.

Maybe the Knicks should do the Haka Dance before each game. I think Phil might actually approve.

In the NBA it would have been a taunting pre game foul and they would have all gotten technical fouls.

You should see it when they do it before the rugby matches. That shit is more intense.

Yeah, I saw one for a soccer match too. It's an aboriginal tribal war dance the New Zealand teams do before all their international matches. It's kind of cool, really.

It's was just the expressions on the faces of a couple of the American basketball players that made me laugh. Like "WTF?"

Yeah, I love that tradition. One of the better ones in sports. Of course in the US they wouldn't have been fined for taunting, because they first would have been sued for not being politically correct.
