Golden State Warriors star Steph Curry shocked fans after a video of the two-time NBA MVP sinking multiple full-court shots went viral but the clip was later revealed to be fake.
The clip, shot by director Ari Fararooy, showed the NBA superstar making five straight big three-pointers at the Warriors’ practice facility.
The four-time NBA champion launched balls the entire length of the court before emerging triumphantly after the fifth and final one slipped through the net.

The video, posted on social media by Sport Illustrated, has divided fans with some left in awe, while others are more suspicious.
Doubters had their suspicions confirmed when the Warriors told DailyMail.com it was fake – despite the franchise having previously shared it on their own account with the caption, ‘Steph gonna STEPH.’
While most responses to the clip criticized it as fake others said that if anyone could have made the victory possible it was Curry.
On social media the user posted: ‘But what if it’s true just goes to show you how good Steph is. It may be true. He’s that good!’
Some social media users felt that only the two-time MVP could have made the breakthrough
‘It’s got to be fake but if there’s one person who could do it, It’s that person,’ added another.
While one claimed that the star was ‘too fake’ it became difficult to make a decision between real and fake.
Before it was confirmed to be fake, some fans were adamant that the viral video was somehow real.
One praised Curry’s skills as they said: ‘Here comes another Robot in the game of sport. Guys like Dinho or Steph curry just weren’t missed.’
Another added: ‘It reminds me of those old crazy Nike commercials that look real… except they aren’t. Howsoever.’

‘If it were anyone else, my call might be fake, but we’re talking about Steph here,’ another claimed. ‘Ray Allen eat your heart out.’
The video was shot by the same director who shot NFL star Tom Brady hitting a hole-in-one earlier this year.
The Buccaneers quarterback and seven-time NFL champion published a video of a stunning golf shot on social media in May that immediately saw skeptics among his 2.7 million followers label the video as ‘fake’ and ‘clickbait’.

Brady, who has been accused by his fans in the past of staging videos, is standing on the fairway in this scene, before firing a shot towards the pin before it goes straight in.
‘That’s good,’ said Brady, as he watched his shot. That’s coming in. That’s coming in!’
The Tampa QB immediately jumped into a disbelieving celebration but his fans had a hard time believing it, especially when they saw the cinematography of the drone footage that made it so smooth.
