NCTzens, fans of K-pop boy band NCT, are freaking out over a tweet by Stephen Curry. The basketball star gave a shoutout to the group after they posted pictures of members Mark, Chenle and Johnny on a basketball court. 

The photos shows Chenle wearing a basketball shirt of Curry's team Golden State Warriors and Curry's photos stuck on the grill beneath the basketball net. In the caption for the pictures, Chenlee shares his love for Curry, which when translated into English reads: "Everyone, I learned English well from Marky and Johnny. it was fun. I want to meet Stephen Curry soon ASAP. See you again on the wall. I'll BRB."

Chenlee's post drew a response from Curry himself who also invited the pop star to a game, saying, "Once the world gets back to normal, let’s make it happen! @warriors game? #CHENLE." See their Twitter exchange below.

"SOMEONE WAKE UP CHENLE," said an NCTzen. 



 

Another repeatedly wrote, "Stephen Curry, you are the GOAT!" For those who don't know, GOAT is a popular acronym for Greatest Of All Time.

One fan said, "This is so wholesome omg please help make sure he gets his signed jersey this time that would mean the world to him," to which another added that Chinle "really loves and looks up to you!!"

Chinle's love for basketball and his two-time NBA Most Valuable Player idol made headlines recently after the singer responded to one of Curry's tweets. On July 31, the Golden State Warriors point guard wrote, "I love every one of my @NBA brothers out there! Welcome back," to which Chenle replied earlier today, "Stephen Curry, you are the GOAT!"

In a video on the NCT's YouTube channel, members Johnny and Marky interviewed him about his admiration for Curry. "I fell in love with him right away," Chenle said, sharing that he first saw Curry in a game in 2016, the year he became the first unanimous MVP in NBA history. His bandmates then proceeded to teach Chenle acronyms used in internet slang so he could tweet his idol.

At the time, Chenle composed a tweet for Curry, typing three goat emojis and a fist bump, although he was never actually shown to send it, but it looks like his English and internet slang lessons resulted in today's tweets. It paid off very well Chenle.
