It looks like at least one professional sports team are fans of the Bullet Club.
As you can see in the tweet below, the Phoenix Suns of the NBA referenced the shot of one of their young superstars in shooting guard Devin Booker by saying that his shot is "too sweet," while copying the Bullet Club's design.
The 21 year-old Booker was selected by the Suns with the 13th overall pick in the 2015 NBA Draft. He's been averaging 23 points per game so far this season.
Booker ended up finishing Wednesday's game against the Milwaukee Bucks with 23 points and four assists. You can watch his highlights below.
The Suns have started this season with a 7-12 record and are currently in 12th place in the Western Conference.
Getting back to the story, Matt Jackson of The Young Bucks approved of the Suns' tweet by reacting to it on Twitter.

The Bullet Club has often been compared to World Championship Wrestling's New World Order (nWo), which was a popular group in the 1990s. Bullet Club decided to start using the "too sweet" hand gesture as way to honor them.
WWE actually submitted a trademark for the gesture in 2015, which was likely done in order to keep the Bullet Club from using it. But the company ended up not going through with the trademark, so they can still use without having to worry about any legal ramifications.
The Bullet Club may want to trademark the term and gesture in order to cash in on it and keep other companies and wrestlers from using it down the road.
The Bullet Club recently stated which wrestler they would like to see join their group and the wrestler named was former WWE star CM Punk. Adding him would certainly continue to put them on the map.
What makes The Bullet Club so impressive is how they span so many different countries as well as wrestling companies. They're spread out over 16 total wrestling promotions and have a total of 14 members. The most recent guy to join was Gino Gambino of New Japan Wrestling on November 11th.
