Dario Saric is a Croatian professional basketball player for the Philadelphia 76ers of the National Basketball Association (NBA). He also represents the Croatian national team. Standing at 6 ft 10 in (2.08 m), he plays at the power forward position. He was drafted 12th overall by the Orlando Magic in the 2014 NBA draft, with his rights later traded to the Philadelphia 76ers.

I believe this footage shows a player called Richaun Holmes gathering the energy from the universe and channeling it into the angriest sideways high five you’ll ever see in your life. This is the type of stuff that even the likes of John Cena can’t tap out of in the WWE. I mean, I truly wouldn’t be surprised if Sario didn’t make another shot for the remainder of February.

 

It's just a free throw. Geez. 😂😂😂😂

It’s safe to say next time Holmes misses a free throw, he’s getting an telepathic high five from Saric.

Saric, is also in contention for the Rookie Of The Month Award in the absence of teammate Joel Embiid.

“Saric is averaging 14.2 points, 5.7 rebounds, 1.8 assists and 1.2 steals per game in February. He leads the conference in scoring and is second among all rookies behind Mavericks guard Yogi Ferrell (15.8). Saric scored a career-high 24 points on Thursday against the Magic and has scored 20 in his past two games.

Saric is second in the East and third overall in rebounding among rookies. Knicks center Willy Hernangomez leads the way with 11.8 boards and Lakers forward Brandon Ingram is pulling down 5.8 this month. 

Saric’s toughest competition in the East this month will be Hernangomez, who was drafted by the Sixers in 2015. In four games so far in February, he is averaging 11.3 points for a double-double. He is tied with Thunder big man Steven Adams for 12th in rebounding this month. Like Saric, Hernangomez is putting up these numbers off the bench (Saric started in one game).”(Jessica Camerato CSN Philly)
