9-Year-Old Writes Steph Curry Over Girls Sneakers, Curry Replies

The youngster's letter didn't fall on deaf ears, thankfully, and it probably helps she shares a name with one of Curry's daughters whose nearly as big a phenom as Curry himself.

Curry also told Riley he was sending her a special pair of Curry 5's and that "you'll be one of the first kids to get the Curry 6". In 12 games this season, Curry is averaging 29.5 points, 6.1 assists and 5.0 rebounds per game while shooting 51.5 per cent from the floor.

"I appreciate your concern and have spent the last 2 days talking to Under Armour about how we can fix the issue". The three-time National Basketball Association champion said that "unfortunately we have labeled smaller sizes as "boys" on the website".

The contest fell during the NBA's tribute to legendary basketball sideline reporter and personality Craig Sager, who lost his battle with cancer almost two years ago.

Riley's father, Chris, tweeted the letter to actress and equality advocate Emma Watson, and in no time Curry was aware of Under Armour's error - and was doing something about it.

When she realized the sneakers didn't come in her size, she wrote to Warriors' point guard Stephen Curry, for whom the Curry 5 basketball shoes are named. "I wanted to help make things equal for all girls, because girls play basketball, too".

Here's to hoping Curry pulls a great event on March 8 and young Riley drives the line in her new shoes soon.

In what should've been Kawhi's night to bask in all on his own, some dude named Durant had other plans, matching Leonard's season-high and raising him a game-high in points while shoving an egregious 51 down the Raptors' throats and nearly single-handedly stealing one for the ailing Warriors, who were without Steph Curry and Draymond Green.

With Stephen Curry, Draymond Green and DeMarcus Cousins out, it's tough to really evaluate the outcome of this game as a benchmark for either team.

Curry has been outspoken about equal opportunities for women in the past.

He and his wife, Ayesha, have two young daughters, and in August he wrote an essay for the Players' Tribune about how personal the issue of women's equality has become for him.

"I want our girls to grow up knowing that there are no boundaries that can be placed on their futures, period. And I want them to grow up believing that they can dream big, and strive for careers where they'll be treated fairly".
