It’s a new day, America. On May 19th the Golden State Warriors beat the Houston Rockets in Game 1 of the NBA Western Conference finals. Steph Curry (named the NBA’s Most Valuable Player of 2015) answered media questions during a post-game conference.
His 2-year-old daughter Riley jumped up on stage where her daddy welcomed her onto his lap as he finished answering questions… sort of. Curry did pretty well multi-tasking, but it was the media that seemed distracted by … Keep Reading!!!
