Mike Greenberg Going Viral For Incredibly Awkward Moment With Julius Randle During ‘NBA Countdown’

ESPN’s “NBA Countdown” has a whole new crew this year. And of the newbies includes longtime host Mike Greenberg.

When the crew of Jalen Rose, Stephen A. Smith, Michael Wilbon, and Greenberg were standing on the court prior to the Knicks-Celtics game, Julius Randle came over to say hello.

After dapping up all the guest besides Mike Greenberg, Randle left the host completely high-and-dry when he went in for a hand shake.

It made for a pretty hilarious moment.

Fans reacted with many jokes to the Mike Greenberg-Julius Randle moment.

Mike Greenberg played off the Julius Randle moment, but he couldn’t even hide an awkward smile through the aftermath.

In the new debut of “NBA Countdown”, ESPN has caught some flak for their choosing of personalities.

Nothing ESPN does will compare to what TNT has with Shaq and Charles for an NBA pregame show, and Mike Greenberg definitely isn’t going to change that dynamic.
