Min Yoongi, professionally known by his stage name Suga, has once again become the cause of ARMYs having a meltdown. He took to his social media pages on Tuesday to post a snap where he can be seen holding a customized Golden State Warriors jersey. With the post, he has made it known once again, what a great basketball fan he is.
And despite the tight schedule during Golden State Warriors’ media day, Stephen Curry retweeted Suga’s snap. “Love the jersey SUGA!! See you soon,” the basketball star wrote. Understandably, BTS fans, ARMYs, could not hold back their excitement.
