Can the back-to-back NBA MVP get any love from Riley out here?
For the second straight postseason, Stephen Curry got rejected while trying to give his adorable daughter Riley a kiss. Cold, but cute world!
Fresh off his Golden State Warriors' 96-88 victory over the Oklahoma City Thunder in Game 7 on Monday night to return to the NBA Finals, Curry attempted to give Riley a quick kiss, but the 3-year-old wasn't having it, rejecting her superstar daddy. Aww, Riley!
That's the second year in a row that baby girl curved Steph after a big win. She swerved, while Curry was trying to give her a kiss following the Warriors' championship victory last year and now, again after his squad pulled out a Game 7 win. Two years, two baby girl rejections!
And the close-up footage from last night's swerve.
Hey, maybe lil' Riley wasn't as impressed about her dad making the Warriors only the 10th NBA team in playoff history to come back from a 3-1 deficit to win a series as we were. Either that, or little Riley is turning a new leaf and is going for more of a low profile these days.
Steph did get love from his other two girls, though, planting a kiss on Riley's baby sister, Ryan, and his wife, Ayesha.
Now all that's left for Steph to do is lead the Warriors past LeBron James's Cleveland Cavaliers for back-to-back NBA titles.
Maybe Riley will give her daddy a kiss then. Maybe not...
It's her world. We just live in it.
We've got our eyes on you, Riley.
