There’s no doubt that NBA star Stephen Curry‘s full court shots are amazing, but one unsuspecting ball boy might argue otherwise after Saturday night’s game.
A Ball Boy Gets Slammed With Surprise Basketball To His Face!
Before tipoff of the Golden State Warriors vs. Milwaukee Bucks game on Saturday night, Curry decided to try his hand at a full court shot from the tunnel entrance. Did he make it? He hit SOMETHING, just not the hoop!
It was a “right place, wrong time” kind of moment for an unsuspecting ball boy who didn’t exactly see it coming and got slammed on the side of his face with the forcefully thrown basketball.
As he’s hit with the ball, his glasses fly off into the small crowd of people standing courtside and he puts his head down, probably with some confusion as to what just hit him. No one around him seems too concerned, and a few are even seen laughing about the crazy thing that just happened, so hopefully that means he’s not too hurt.
Of course, after seeing such insanity, people on social media had some fun at the ball boy’s expense. In the comments of the video posted on Instagram by Overtime, fans shared their thoughts.
“Steph never misses,” one fan wrote. “Me personally I would’ve fell on the ground and acted dead someone’s paying me,” said another.
Another person suggested a doctor after that hit, “Someone call the doc. That’s going to leave a mark.”
One fan added, “Really expected it to be all net! Not all ‘neck’ 🥴🤕,” and another added, “He didn’t miss a target tho.”
Fans on Twitter also added to the hilarity of the moment.

Another fan tweeted, ” I would happily tell me friends about this.” Many others tweeted hilarious memes and gifs to make light of an interesting situation that could have ended very differently.
When Steph Curry Isn’t Accidentally Injuring Ball Boys, He’s Making Kids Cry!
Of course, we mean tears of joy! During the same evening of the ball boy’s incident, the NBA shared a video on their Instagram page of Curry meeting a young fan who couldn’t contain her happy tears from meeting the NBA star.
Simply captioned, “Steph made her day! #NBAonABC,” the short video shows the young girl meeting Curry and being overwhelmed with emotions about the moment. After taking photos with Curry, she sat back down courtside crying over the experience she won’t soon forget.

“I love when I go to a game and the players sign and interact with the kids. The smiles on the kids faces are priceless,” one NBA follower wrote in the comments. “Steph’s such a great guy and a great role model for the NBA,” added another.
One follower hilariously asked about the timing of this amazing moment. “Did they post this before or after Steph hit someone with the ball on the court 😂😂.”
