Golden State Warrior star player Stephen Curry helped to lead his team to a 110-106 victory over the Houston Rockets lat night where Curry had 34 pts. and 5 assists. Curry stuck to his usual swagger nailing numerous seemingly impossible shots including a contested buzzer-beater at the end of the first half, but it was another Curry that stole the show.
Stephen Curry’s daughter Riley made an appearance in the post game interview and stole all of her daddy’s thunder. Riley sat upon her dad’s lap for as long as she could stand it, smiling, laughing, waving and enticing a room full of reporters.
At one point, Riley even hushed her father.
She took a brief stint in hiding under the table observing the room from below until she had had enough and went running off the stage through the crowd.

Watch out dad, there’s another star in the Curry family.
Of course it wasn’t without some disinterest, The Wilmington Star-News’ Brett Frielander felt that maybe Riley’s appearance was unnecessary, in a recently deleted tweet he stated that
“Steph Curry’s kid is cute. That doesn’t mean she should have been at presser. There are professionals on deadlines there w/ jobs to do, too.”
As well as ESPN’s Brian Windhorst who’s college Ramona Shelburne tweeted about Brian saying
Post-game conferences could use the buzz every once in awhile and Riley Curry brought just that, block the haters Riley because you stole the show.
