How does Michael Jordan decide who he gives a butt or chest slap to?

Above, Michael Jordan, the majority owner of the Charlotte Hornets, shares a variety of butt and chest slaps with members of the staff and team.

How does His Airness decide who gets the butt or chest slap? It seems rather random.

The first nine people shown exiting all get a simple chest slap with the back of Jordan’s hand.

After the camera pans away but then goes back to the greeting line, showing Nic Batum getting a pat on the back of his head, Jordan resorts to butt slaps on the likes of Jeremy Lin and Al Jefferson.

What does it all mean?
