NBA superstar Stephen Curry has been known to celebrate his three-pointers before they go in, but he’s earned that right. He holds the record for threes in a season and was the NBA’s first-ever unanimous selection for MVP. But teenage baller Cullen Melton is not Steph Curry.

Melton made this shot look good, but looks can be deceiving, and karma swiftly punished him for his hubris. I’m not going to spoil the punchline, but it is exquisite. Watching him go for the ball after it’s all over? *Italian chef kiss*, my friends. One for the ages.
Tens of thousands of retweets, each one a red-hot poker of shame.
Even his sister is making fun of him.

To his eternal credit, though, Melton is totally chill about it.
It’s okay, man. Even Steph doesn’t make ’em all.
