Stephen Curry, LeBron James react to kid who: ‘See what you started’
A recent celebration from NBA star Stephen Curry has made waves around the sporting world and now it has been imitated by a young player.
A video then emerged showing a child playing basketball and dropping to the floor to pretend he is asleep in bed after he scored.
Curry recently celebrated after sinking a big shot against the Boston Celtics in the NBA Finals by pretending to sleep.
Golden State Warriors star Stephen Curry is often imitated, rarely duplicated and never surpassed … until now. Curry showed some love to a young basketball player who took Curry’s “night night” celebration to the next level during a game.
After hitting a jump shot, the kid actually drops to the floor and mimics sleeping in his bed. It was an elevated form of Curry pretending to sleep after sinking a big shot against the Boston Celtics in the NBA Finals.
Curry liked what he saw from the kid.
He wasn’t the only one. Los Angeles Lakers star LeBron James also weighed in, blaming Curry for starting a new trend. James tweeted, “You see what you started” at Curry.
At least one NBA player was not happy about the kid’s celebration. Curry’s teammate, Andre Iguodala, said he would make the kid run laps for taunting the opponent.
Well, two out of three ain’t bad, especially when the two players on the kid’s side are two of the best players in the NBA. No disrespect to Iguodala, but if Curry and James are on board with the kid’s celebration, that’s probably all that matters.
