Gasp! Riley Curry just experienced stage fright for the first time! At the Golden State Warriors victory parade on June 19, little Riley got seriously shy in front of thousands of fans and tried to hide behind her proud daddy, Stephen Curry. But she still managed to steal the show. Click to WATCH!
OMG! This is just too adorable for words! Stephen Curry, 27, may have been the hero for the Golden State Warriors in their epic NBA Finals win over the Cleveland Cavaliers, but it’s his cute daughter, Riley Curry, 2, that earns the title for “Toddler MVP.” The precious 2-year-old showed that she can get a little shy, too. Watch her melt your heart as she gets bashful in front of the roaring crowd at the Warriors championship parade rally on June 19 in Oakland, Calif.
Riley was a highlight of the Warriors’ run in the NBA Finals, often managing to steal the show completely from her daddy’s basketball skills when she attended a series of games throughout the season. But when it came to giving a speech at the team’s championship rally, the young tot got stage fright! Watch the clip below.
As her dad made the closing speech at the celebration, his teammate Draymond Green lifted Riley and put her on the podium to address the crowd. And when her father asked her if she wanted to add any gloss to the occasion, Riley ADORABLY muttered “Way” and then turned away from the microphone in fear!
Earlier in the parade, she was seen collecting confetti and tossing it in the air on an open top bus. However, her attention waned when local politicians and team officials began their speeches, so she distracted herself with her dad’s cell phone. And the large crowd that showed up for the Warriors was completely enamored by Riley, chanting her name whenever they could. One fan even held up a poster announcing his support for her as a presidential candidate!
The Warriors pretty much led the game from the start, showing their intentions to win their first championship trophy since 1975, with Steph dominating the court for the Warriors. But the series may be better remembered for Cavs star LeBron James, 30, who accidentally flashed his penis on camera during Game 4 on June 11.
