Alston Thinking Fist Bump with Flu in the Air

Rafer Alston played well Friday, scoring 10 points, but he might have had second thoughts about shaking hands afterwards. It has nothing to do with teamwork. Like a lot of athletes, he's concerned about the H1N1 virus. "It's hard not to shake someone's hand," Alston told TIME. "It's something we're taught at birth. Are guys going to stop what they've been doing for 20 years? Nah. Not everybody does the fist bump."
