Golden State Warriors guard and reigning NBA MVP Stephen Curry is accustomed to making ridiculous plays, shots and throwing absurd assists. After his hometown Carolina Panthers fell 24-10 in Super Bowl 50 on Sunday evening, it was Curry who was on the other end of a wild play ... from me.
Grimacing in shame because of his team's disappointing performance to the Denver Broncos, Curry tweeted out the following and accompanied it with the popular sports Twitter meme aka the crying Michael Jordan face. The Jordan Crying face symbolizes the sadness in sports through athletes, coaches and more.
Here's where the assist from me comes in: I made the photo and tweet it out 47 minutes before Curry published his tweet. He stole the photo and essentially returned the face back to me.
Despite a mini Twitter rant I had tonight (which was full sarcasm, by the way), I'm not actually mad at Curry. He had good intentions and wanted to make good use of something on the Internet. Besides, it's my fault because I forgot to tag my Twitter name on the photo (which I usually do) before sending it out. Hopefully, he acknowledges he got it from me and provides credit, though. I'm just saying.
The Jordan crying face has recently gone through a small dip in Twitter excitement because of over-use and general expiration. But Curry using it on himself re-sparked the movement and presumably gave Crying Jordan artists like myself another few months to keep the meme going.
