Social Media Thinks They Saw A Popular NFL Superstar Playing For The Golden State Warriors (PIC) – News

SAN FRANCISCO, CALIFORNIA – JANUARY 24: Golden State Warriors head coach Steve Kerr shouts to his team during their game against the Atlanta Hawks in the first half at Chase Center on January 24, 2024 in San Francisco, California.
Social media is making the same hilarious joke after spotting a doppelganger on the Golden State Warriors.

Golden State forward Gui Santos went viral during Wednesday night’s home game against the Philadelphia 76ers.

It had nothing to do with Santos’ performance, but rather the fact that he happens to look a lot like Los Angeles Rams superstar wide receiver Puka many fans noticed on social media:

Not saying they’re the same person, but we will say that we have never seen Santos and Nacua in the same room together.

Nacua was one of the biggest surprises of the 2023 season. The fifth-round pick (177th overall) out of BYU was the top rookie wideout this year, recording 105 receptions for 1,486 yards and six touchdowns.

Nacua’s efforts helped the Rams return to the postseason with a 10-7 record, where they narrowly fell to Jared Goff’s Detroit Lions in the Wild Card Round.

The 21-year-old Santos was drafted in the second round (55th overall) by the Warriors in 2022. He spent last season with the Santa Cruz Warriors of the NBA G League before joining Golden State this season.
