NBA fans know Steph Curry regularly makes circus shots part of his pre-game warmup routine.
But earlier this month, the two-time NBA MVP Euro-stepped through the paint on the Golden State Warriors' layup line and threw up a super high shot that found the bottom of the net ... and drew the collective awe of the internet. The clip quickly made the rounds on Twitter and Instagram so much that it sparked the #CurryChallenge, with people posting their own over-the-top trick shots.
But in emulating the two-time league champion, fans doing the #CurryChallenge are often putting others at risk physically with their crazy attempts at making circus shots — enough for Steph to warn people to "be very mindful."
"I will just say be very mindful of the repercussions of messing with people's stuff," Curry told ESPN about people participating in the #CurryChallenge. "I do not condone violence. That is the only thing. I do not condone violence."
Here is Steph's circus shot on November 6 that sparked the #CurryChallenge and the video that made him warn others about the repercussions, along with other submissions to the trick-shot challenge sweeping the internet.
How did he get that in?
This dude was flagrantly messing with people. Reckless. Your thoughts?
That shot was still something to behold, right? And like Steph often does, he looked away after taking the shot.
Hard to top this.
It's a party!
Hey, why not?
