Steph Curry interacts with Ousmane Dembele as he performs ‘Night Night’ Celebration

Steph Curry is a global icon, so it’s no surprise that the celebration he was made famous for during the 2022 NBA Warriors race made its way around the world.

The latest example of an athlete repeating Curry’s “Night Night” celebration came during a friendly match between FC Barcelona and Juventus at Cotton Bowl in Dallas on Tuesday night.

Star winger Ousmane Dembele scored a stunning goal in the 40th minute of the match, giving Barcelona a short 2-1 lead. As he ran toward the seam line to celebrate, he made a “night” gesture. Dembele’s problem is that Juventus tied in the 51st minute and the match ended in a draw.

Even if Dembélé doesn’t use the celebration exactly as intended – when an athlete finishes off his opponent’s chance of winning the competition – it still gets Curry’s attention.

Curry began using celebration during the NBA’s first-round match against the Denver Nuggets in April and continued to use it as the Warriors put away the Memphis Grizzlies, the Dallas Mavericks and the Boston Celtics on their way to their fourth title in eight seasons.

Since then, countless athletes across all sports have taken advantage of the “Night Night” celebration, including Skylar Diggins-Smith, Sabrina Ionescu, Andres Jimenez, Andrew McCutchen and Alex Morgan. Even children have fun during youth games.
