DO YOU SEE THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN THESE FISTBUMPS THOUGH

in the first one, Kuroko’s hand is in a more passive position, meeting Kagami’s fist without overtaking or threatening its superior position - at this point in time, Kuroko was convinced his power came entirely from his teammates, that he no innate strength of his own, that relying on others was his only ability

in the second one, he meets Kagami’s fist directly, on equal terms, in the same position - this is after Kuroko realizes that he does have innate power, and all he has to do is believe in his potential and work hard to become just as strong as his teammates

I’M SO PROUD OF HIM
