Why JTA introduced himself to NBA Twitter after viral celebration


As a surprise to absolutely no one, Steph Curry dominated the 3-point line once again in the Warriors' 111-105 victory over the Orlando Magic on Thursday at Chase Center.

Curry, who erupted for 40 points, was virtually unstoppable. His teammates, however, are pretty much used to that at this point. 

That includes Oakland native Juan Toscano-Anderson, whose early celebration of a Curry shot from deep instantly went viral. 

The only problem? Nobody used Toscano-Anderson's name. 

Come on, people. His last name is even printed on the back of his jersey. 

So, Toscano-Anderson took to Twitter himself to make the introduction.

Of course, Curry had his "teammate's" back. 

As for the celebration itself, well, that was pretty epic. 

"A little exciting, but you can do those things when you're playing with the best shooter in the world," Toscano-Anderson told reporters on a video conference after the win. "I'm super confident in him shooting the ball, obviously. It's kind of like every time he shoots the ball, you expect it to go in."

While Curry lately has once again been playing at an MVP-caliber level, Toscano-Anderson is impressing on his own fronts, with coach Steve Kerr noting that even though the 27-year-old is on a two-way contract, he still is an "automatic" starter for Golden State. 

Now, social media has a name to match to Toscano-Anderson's notable play. But if that doesn't work, he could always change the name on his jersey to "Steph's teammate."

Kidding, of course.
