OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) — There’s at least one person on the planet who can contain Stephen Curry: his daughter.
Curry’s 2-year-old daughter, Riley, stole the spotlight from the Golden State Warriors star and NBA MVP during his news conference after Tuesday night’s 110-106 victory over the Houston Rockets.
She crawled through the table skirt before he picked her up and placed her on his lap. Riley waved to reporters and interrupted Curry a couple of times. At one point, she muttered a few words and Curry told her to “hold on a second, OK?” She replied, “Be quiet,” drawing laughs from the room.
Curry smiled and shook his head, telling reporters his daughter is usually more reserved. Photos and videos of the scene spread fast on social media.
Curry had 34 points, six rebounds and five assists in Game 1 of the Western Conference finals.
