It’s been a minute since the Internet had a hoops-inspired challenge craze.
Actually, you have to look back to the Summer of Fun, when the #DriveByDunkChallenge inspired #NBATwitter, #NCAABTwitter, and average Joes to randomly dunk on stranger’s driveway hoops.

It was fun while it lasted but like all good things, it had to come to an end.
Four months later, and we’ve finally got a new craze: the #CurryChallenge.

Inspired by Steph Curry’s 25-foot circus toss during pre-game warmups against the Nets Sunday night, the #CurryChallenge was born.

Yup, it’s exactly how it sounds.
Random people making pretty silly shots and their friends being a tad overzealous celebrating it.
Seems harmless, right? Apparently, it’s not.
