The study hasn't been published yet, but the NYTimes says it tries measure the effect of touching (high fives, bumps, and hugs) on team performance. Hard to separate cause and effect, but maybe the researchers are onto something. Remember this Andrew Bogut video (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Zc11PUnFgkQ)? Bucks didn't play too well that year. This could be yet another reason to love Noah as a Bulls fan.
