Watch: Riley Curry's NBA Finals Game 1 victory dance
Monday June 8th, 2015

Philadelphia 76ers center Joel Embiid was in Oakland on Monday and ran into the most popular person in the Bay Area, Riley Curry. 

Stephen Curry's daughter has been the star of the NBA playoffs, drawing shoutouts from Drake and starring on illicitly-produced merchandise. Charles Barkley might not be her biggest fan, but everyone else seems to love her. 

So you can only imagine how thrilled Embiid was to cross paths with Riley on Monday. He said was in town to see Marshawn Lynch, who doesn't have as much fun at press conferences.

If Embiid was trying to be sneaky, it didn't work. Riley was staring right at him.

Stephen Curry: I rarely ever have a bad day because of Riley​

Hey Riley lol.... I'm in Oakland to see Marshawn Lynch and look who I just saw..... #SuperstarRiley #ImAPaparazzi
