The Golden State Warriors have become notorious for celebrating three-pointers early.

Often times, after a pass, a Warriors player will run back on defense, already celebrating a presumed made three. When it goes right, it's a good celebration.

However, you can do that on the Warriors, when the team is stocked with three of the best shooters in NBA history.

On the Phoenix Suns, it's a little bit different, as former Warriors guard Leandro Barbosa learned the hard way on Thursday as he attempted to celebrate a Jared Dudley three-point early.

Dudley is shooting 42% from three this season and is a career 40% shooter from three, meaning he's usually a reliable source to knock it down. Unfortunately, for Barbosa, it did not go as planned.

Dudley knew he messed up after the game.

I agree! I'm sorry!! 😂😂 https://t.co/Jg1MX72Q8K

Barbosa has company, however. LeBron James, Steven Adams, and even Kevin Durant have all done the same thing.
