Default Re: When did slapping hands after every FT become the norm?

Actually it's imperative to low five or slap hands after the guy misses a FT as it stands as a vote of confidence from his teammates and results in a morale boost. Don't see how it is a bad move? As for the roots, I remember seeing it done in Volleyball before it became more common in Basketball.
