NBA Commissioner David Stern presided over his 20th and final NBA Draft on Thursday night. From (H)Akeem Olajuwon in 1984 through the end of this year’s first round, Stern has shaken more than 800 hands on the stage.

But his final draft provided one of the all-time greatest handshakes, when Lucas Nogueira of Brazil had his name called by the Boston Celtics midway through the first round. That afro. That hat. That size differential!
