The daughter of Golden State Warrior guard Stephen Curry hammed it up for the cameras at a post-game press conference after the team beat the Houston Rockets 104-90. She yawned noisily, hid under a black curtain, asked an Oracle arena employee to hold her gum and tried to get a word in while her dad was talking by singing “Blessings” by Drake and Big Sean. Her rendition even got Drake’s attention, and he posted video of it on Instagram:
“She’s way too comfortable,” Curry said.
At a May 19 press conference, she told her dad to “be quiet” and climbed under the table:
Some sports reporters argue these antics make it harder to ask questions: “I am not in favor of having children, especially very young children on the press conference stage,” ESPN’s Brian Windhorst told Grantland‘s “The Lowe Post” podcast. “It distracts, totally changes the mood in the room, it removes the professionalism, and it makes the job harder. We have very limited media access to the players in the playoffs as it is.” He argued that with kids at the podium, it becomes awkward to ask tough questions “about how their dads failed, and we can’t do that with kids up there.”
While the Warriors will be advancing to the NBA finals, many will probably just tune in to see what Riley Curry will do next.
