If we’re being honest, Stephen Curry’s 2021-22 regular season left a lot to be desired for the Golden State Warriors. That is when you compare it to the incredibly high standard he’s built for himself at the GOAT level in his career.

Aside from his injury-plagued 2019-20 season, Steph’s field goal conversion rate (43.7%) and three-point efficiency (38%) were the lowest of his career. He also missed several games at the track due to injury.

However, the baller redeemed himself in great fashion during the playoffs and with his MVP-worthy Finals run. And the good vibes created by his resurgence were perfectly encapsulated every time Curry dropped his “Night, Night” celebration.

Whether he was finishing off the Grizz, hitting Luka Doncic’s eye with a three-point hitch, or clinching the Larry at Beantown, he was resting his head against his hands and sweetly dreaming the opposition in short order.

Steph’s new popular taunt captured the collective imagination of the masses to such an extent that it appeared in other sports and at all levels of competition. Meanwhile, Curry himself continues to break out in a veritable gold mine of situations.

However, not everyone is happy with the movement or its ubiquitous nature.

Curry and former Los Angeles Lakers teammate Juan Toscano-Anderson were in attendance at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas on Saturday. The occasion: Boxing champion Canelo Alvarez defended his undisputed super middleweight title against his rival Gennadiy Golovkin.

During the event, Steph was photographed in his night-to-night pose. And while the card-carrying members of Dub Nation were probably thrilled to see it, his recent portrayal of the now-iconic celebration has rubbed many people the wrong way on Twitter.

“Does he have to do everything about himself?” one commenter wondered.

“You know Steph is so cheesy,” he said another fan. “More than a decade after all those rings and awards, he still doesn’t know how to just keep his cool.

“He’s milking a celebration he didn’t even invent,” he wrote a third tweeterwho was one of many to point to the fact that pro wrestler CM Punk has been flashing the night-night taunt as a precursor to his “Go To Sleep” finisher since the mid-2000s.

“It just gives off the vibe that he’s desperate for attention,” he added a fourth respondent to the picture.

“He’s the craziest person I know, that’s why only 7-year-olds like him.” read another post.

In another closely fought fight, Alvarez was able to retain his championship by defeating Golovkin in another 12-round classic. The 32-year-old secured the win via unanimous decision as two judges scored the fight 115-113 in favor of Alvarez while a third’s scorecard read 116-112.

“Thank you my friend. Thank you for everything. We gave the fans three good fights,” Alvarez told his opponent after the game.

“This is the best fighter in boxing. Everyone knows who [Canelo is]… It’s a huge fight. Look at his face; look me in the face We trained well and it shows that we made a very good, high-quality fight,” Golovkin added.

“Today Canelo is better. Congratulations to Canelo.”

For his part, Steph congratulated the fighter himself:

“This is the best fighter in boxing. Everyone knows who [Canelo is]… It’s a huge fight. Look at his face; look me in the face We trained well and it shows that we made a very good, high-quality fight,” Golovkin added.
