The NBA season might be over, but Riley season is year-long
Her father, Stephen Curry, won his first MVP and NBA Championship trophy this season, but somehow, Riley Curry was the star of the NBA Playoffs this year, thanks to her post-game conference antics.
Today was her birthday, and in celebration, Silento‘s Whip and Nae-Nae anthem, “Watch Me,” which is quickly gaining popularity nationwide, was the soundtrack to her triumphant dance. After all, not only is she an NBA Champion, but she just welcomed her younger sister to the world. There’s much to dance to. Watch her adorable moves here.
After these playoffs are over and people aren’t talking about LeBron James place in history, or how special the Golden State Warriors season was, but about Stephen Curry’s daughter young Riley Curry. Curry became a superstar over these past weeks, and the internet made sure that her stardom would be memorable.
Forget that her dad’s probably the greatest shooter of all-time. Riley Curry is the one who can’t miss.
Last night was a historic one for the Golden State Warriors, and a career-defining moment for Stephen Curry. The 2015 NBA MVP led his team to victory in Game 5 of the WCF last night, placing him and his squad of shooters and voracious defenders in what will surely be an NBA Finals for the ages. It was a celebratory moment for all wearing blue and yellow, and though Riley Curry didn’t have on a jersey, she took to the podium to celebrate as well.
How about some Big Sean and Drake? Encore, encore!
Riley Curry has more than her share of fun after dad squeaks out a Game 1 victory
Last night was supposed to be about the regular season MVP and MVP runner-up, Stephen Curry and James Harden, battling for home-court advantage in what’s expected to be an entertaining, if not contentious, Western Conference Finals. For most of the evening, it was just that. After falling behind by 16 points in the first half, Curry (34 pts, 6 rbs, 5 asts) helped his team battle back, and eventually hold off the resilient Rockets, and a 4th quarter comeback attempt led by Harden, who fell just an assist short of a triple-double (28 pts, 11 rbs, 9 asts).
However, following the sound of the 4th quarter buzzer, the story line quickly changed, and Stephen wasn’t the Curry taking over. His daughter, Riley Curry, who insisted that she be included in her dad’s post-game presser, quickly stole the show. As her father glanced at the night’s stat sheet and did his best to answer reporters’ questions despite his daughter’s antics, he quickly became the 2nd most interesting person in his family. Even ESPN’s cameraman panned towards the far left of the table at which Stephen Curry was seated to catch some of Riley’s antics. You can see some of the adorable footage above.
