While the season is still about a month away, Golden State Warriors point guard Stephen Curry took some time off from practice before training camps begin. Curry, along with former teammate Juan Toscano-Anderson recently attended a boxing match at the T-Mobile Center. They were among thousands of boxing fans who attended the Canelo vs GGG fight.

The most anticipated fight between Canelo Alvarez and Gennady Golovkin took place in Las Vegas. This was the third time that the pair had faced off against each other. The duo had fought each other twice before in 2017 and 2018, where Alvarez had emerged victorious.

And history repeated itself as Alvarez won yet again. But Alvarez’s victory is not the only thing that fans are talking about. It seems like Stephen Curry has managed to nab fans’ attention and probably not for the right reasons.

As the match ensued, the cameras panned to the Golden State Warriors star and the crowd saw him performing his signature ‘Night, Night’ celebration from his seat.

However, Twitterati wasted no time in coming forward to criticize him. Here are some of the best reactions from NBA Twitter:

Going through the tweets, it is evident that fans are not a fan of Curry’s signature celebration. While some criticized it for being cringy, others claimed that the signature celebration was not his, but rather wrestler CM Punk.

Curry made headlines when he started doing the ‘Night, Night’ celebration from the postseason. During an interview with the Boardroom, Curry told them about the first time he had done the move and what made it happen.

“I had finished that layup underneath Jokic, and that was the thought that came out – just to do the sign. I didn’t say, ‘Night, Night’ at the time, I was just telling myself, ‘Put ‘em to sleep,’” said Curry.

However, it is unknown who first came up with the move. Nevertheless, since Curry started the celebration, it has influenced other athletes like Sabrina Ionescu, Skylar Diggins-Smith, Neymar and several other players to do the same ‘put them to sleep’ move.
