Stephen Curry meets viral sensation Zachary Walker ahead of Warriors game

  • Steph Curry's got you youngsters

Curry also invited his young fan to join him at a special event planned March 8 for International Women's Day.

Walker, a 10-year-old up-and-coming basketball star, took the floor with other members of the FIlipino Basketball Association for an exhibition during halftime of the Raptors' Nov. 12 game with the New Orleans Pelicans.

Riley really pulled the guilt card on Curry to fix this issue, reminding him that he has two daughters and has hosted an all-girls basketball camp. "Unfortunately we have labeled smaller sizes "boys" on the website and we are correcting this NOW".

A letter to Curry by a young girl named Riley from Napa in California pointed out that the National Basketball Association star's signature shoe - Curry 5 - was not available under the "girls" section on the Under Armour website.

The shoes have since been rebranded in the girls section of UA's site as "Grade School UA Curry 5".

As a big Warriors fan, she had her eyes on some Curry 5's but was left frustrated at what she saw.

On top of that, Curry told Riley that he plans to send her a pair of the Curry 5's and will make sure she gets one of the first pairs of the Curry 6.

From ages 11 to 14, Stephen Curry would take the floor at what was once known as the Air Canada Centre to hone his game while his father Dell was a member of the Toronto Raptors.

Morrison's letter and Curry's heartfelt response quickly went viral, with many Twitter users applauding Curry's honest response.

Not only did Curry talk to Under Armour about fixing the problem (and getting the shoes categorised correctly on the website), he's going to send her a pair of the shoes she wanted, plus a pair of his newest design.

Stephen Curry in action. In an August opinion piece for the Players' Tribune, Curry wrote he hoped his two daughters - one of whom is coincidentally also named Riley - could "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".
