Golden State Warriors star Stephen Curry started a movement with his “night night” celebration during his 2022 NBA Finals run, Neymar Jr. being the latest world-class athlete to emulate the four-time champion.
Neymar Jr. scored a brace in Paris St. Germain’s Ligue 1 win over Montpellier on Saturday.
After his second goal, the Brazilian forward celebrated like Curry, making social media go crazy.
The two athletes share incredible mutual respect for each other and have met up several times in the past.
Neymar is just one of multiple world-class players of various sports to emulate Curry after scoring.
Steph Curry starts movement
After Curry and the Warriors defeated the Boston Celtics in the 2022 NBA Finals, multiple athletes from various sports adopted his celebration.
WNBA stars Sabrina Ionescu and Skylar Diggins-Smith were among the first to do the celebration along with MLB player Andrew McCutchen.
While Curry was not the first to do the “night night” celebration, it never went this viral.
Neymar, who has his own iconic celebration, will likely get some props from Curry for keeping “night night” alive.
