After her appearances at the post-game press conferences in the Western Conference Finals victory over the Houston Rockets, she wished her father good luck prior to tip off in the NBA Finals 2015 on Thursday night.
It seemed to work given that the Warriors secured a 108-100 win over the Cleveland Cavaliers to take a 1-0 series lead, and she topped it off with a victory dance after the game which certainly found its way around the internet.
While there is no denying that she is adorable, there has been a backlash to the extended coverage that she is receiving in recent weeks.
Some argue that the Curry family shouldn’t be pushing their young daughter into the media spotlight so much, with Curry then getting annoyed during his post-game press conference on Thursday night when asked where his daughter was.
Further, others have argued that the focus should be on the basketball action on the court and not what is happening with family off it with Riley’s every game-day movements being picked up more and more.
Curry isn’t the first player to ever bring out his child to a press conference, and he won’t be the last. However, there is substance to both arguments but ultimately it probably won’t make much of a difference to what he decides to do in the future.
