Stephen Curry has had a profound impact on the game of basketball ever since he turned into a star with the Golden State Warriors nearly a decade ago. But now it's not just the type of shots that people are taking that Curry's having an impact on — it's the celebrations too.
Steph Curry pulled off an epic “night night” celebration as the Warriors were putting away the Boston Celtics during the recently concluded NBA Finals, a celebration he pulled off throughout the playoffs.
He couldn't help but react to Phoenix Mercury Skyler Diggins-Smith hitting the Dallas Wings with the same celebration after hitting a contested triple from the top of the key:

She wasn't the first WNBA star to rock the same celebration as Stephen Curry. Sabrina Ionescu did the same thing for the New York Liberty after hitting a logo trey in the final minute of action. That shot also caught the Warriors point guard's eye, fully aware of the “movement” that he started with the taunt:
Start a movement. Congrats All-Star starter! https://t.co/h9U4WLLhYh

With Curry popularizing this celebration in these playoffs, it's a safe bet that once the next season rolls around later this year, we'll be seeing these bedtime invitations more often.
