While the rest of the basketball world was busy enjoying the weekend’s Summer League action, Golden State Warriors superstar Stephen Curry was out playing some golf. The reigning NBA Finals MVP took part in a celebrity golf tournament, but unsurprisingly, he wasn’t at all disconnected from the sport that he excels in the most.
Naturally, a basketball hoop was set up right on the golf course for Curry. After showcasing a bit of his handles, the Warriors talisman then took a step-back triple from deep. This is the greatest shooter of all time we’re talking about here, so there was no other result than the ball hitting the bottom of the net. Right after the made shot, Stephen Curry hit his infamous “night night” celebration as the crowd cheered on (h/t ClutchPoints on Twitter):

Steph has been hitting this celebration a lot this past season, and it’s definitely picking up. It’s become quite a popular celly, and athletes from all sports have been doing it over the past month or so. That’s the Steph Curry effect for you.
We’re definitely going to be seeing much more of this celebration from Steph this coming season. At 34, the Warriors star is going to be entering the 14th season of his career but at this point, there are no signs of slowing down from the former back-to-back league MVP. Golden State is fully expected to be contenders again in 2022-23 as Stephen Curry and Co. go for championship No. 5 in the past nine years.
