After an impressive duel that saw Steph Curry put up a ridiculous 49 points (16-24 FG, 8-13 3PT) in a win against Kyrie Irving (37 points: 13-18 FG, 5-6 3PT) and the Celtics, the two point GODS met at half court, shared a smile, a hug and almost a final hand shake.
The amusing “Kyrie left him hanging” moment was celebrated on social media but not on the NBA’s social media. Here’s the NBA’s tweet of the encounter.
Here’s how the rest of the internet saw it. Or should I say the rest of the internet with a sense of humor since so many people on social media are more sensitive than an All-Star who doesn’t want to be drafted on Live TV.
