Stephen Curry backs Juan Toscano-Anderson as he makes himself known
Last night Bleacher Report shared a clip of the game, where Juan Toscano Anderson made a pass to Curry and was seen celebrating a 3 pointer, even before Curry shot it. Curry ended up making the same, but it was a highlight that pages shared everywhere on social media.
However, when BR shared the clip, they did not name JTA, and instead called him ‘Steph’s teammate’. The 2nd year player out of G-League took it upon himself to identify himself and quoted their tweet.
Hi, I’m Steph’s teammate 🙋🏽♂️, my names Juan. https://t.co/Rmjv7rsI6E
