Magic Johnson was trending for all the wrong reasons recently, having mentioned Steph Curry’s mom in a tweet.

The Professional Basketball Writers Association named the Golden State Warriors star the Magic Johnson Award winner on Wednesday, and the former Los Angeles Lakers point guard inadvertently caused a stir while congratulating him.

“Congratulations to Stephen Curry on winning his second PBWA Magic Johnson Award honoring a player who displays ‘cooperation and grace in dealing with the media and fans’ both on and off the court!” he shared.

“By the way @StephenCurry30, I had fun hanging out with your mom last night at the Sparks home opener!”

Not sure we need to tell you why that reads a little strangely.

Of course, social media had a field day with the last sentence. You can see some of the best reactions below:

Magic Johnson Tells It Like It Is

If you’ve seen any of Magic Johnson’s tweets, you’d know he wasn’t messing with Curry or being disrespectful in any way.

The five-time NBA champion is known for his plain social media posts that tell it like it is. He was really just telling Steph that he met his mother, Sonya Curry, at a WNBA game.

They were both at Walter Pyramid on Wednesday night to watch the Los Angeles Sparks play the Atlanta Dream. Johnson is part of an ownership group buying the Sparks, which recently drafted Cameron Bink as the No. 2 overall pick. Bink happens to be Sonya’s goddaughter.

John W. Davis of the Long Beach Press-Telegram also posted a video of the pair greeting each other at the game.

Meanwhile, Curry is now a two-time winner of the Magic Johnson Award, having won it back in 2016. He joins Damian Lillard and Shane Battier as the only athletes who have won it twice.
