While Stephen Curry's play has propelled the Golden State Warriors to their first NBA Finals in 40 years, anyone with an eye on the postgame press conferences knows the true breakout star has been his daughter Riley.
After causing quite a stir at her initial playoff appearance, hiding under the table and telling her father he was talking too loudly, Riley came back with another elite-level performance on Wednesday night.
The 2-year old made her presence known. She made several attempts to sing "Blessed" by Big Sean and Drake, handed an Arena worker her gum, played underneath the curtains on the side of the stage (move over, James Harden) and let everyone know she was up past her bedtime with a great big yawn.
Drake himself even had to recognize.
The hardest part of waiting until June 4 for the NBA Finals to start could very well be going that long without any Riley press conferences.
