Here's Why Riley Curry Is The Real NBA MVP

For the first time in 40 years, the Golden State Warriors are heading to the NBA Finals where they'll square off against the Cleveland Cavaliers, and much of the Warriors' stellar season is largely thanks to point guard Stephen Curry and his seriously jaw-dropping plays. Curry may have won the league's MVP award this year, but all anyone seems to be talking about after Wednesday's Game 5 win against the Houston Rockets is Curry's daughter Riley, who has become the real MVP of the NBA playoffs. The spitting image of her famous dad, Riley has already gained a huge following on the Internet — all at the tender age of 2.

Over the years, Curry has earned a good-guy reputation in the NBA, one that has helped make the family man a fan favorite. The Curry family — which includes Steph, wife Ayesha, Riley, and a soon-to-be second child — is seriously killing it in the #FamilyGoals arena. But at the rate things are going, Riley, who turns 3 in July, might soon upstage her father even as he's about to play the biggest games of his life. Her celebrations on the court and during post-game interviews have made her an online hit, and something tells me she's starting to pick up on the fact that she's got some major fans.
