Nik Stauskas Slaps John Beilein After Getting Drafted [VIDEO]

By Evan Jankens

The happiest day for a big-time college basketball player is getting drafted into the NBA. The proudest moment for a coach is when his top athlete gets taken in the first round.

The draft dream coming true, however, does not always ensure that a perfect hug or high five will follow. The best example happened Thursday night when the Sacremento Kings selected former Wolverine guard Nik Stauskas as the eighth overall pick.

When Stauskas was about to go to the podium to meet NBA commissioner Adam Silver, he was greeting his family, agents and of course Michigan head coach John Beilein. The only problem was that Stauskas tried to give Beilein a high five, and Beilein is a hugger, so Beilein went for the hug and Stauskas went for the five. A face slap ensued.

Talk about an embarrassing moment.
