    Normally, the Bay Area's most popular 2-year-old is telling her daddy to be quiet, or sticking gum in a PR's guys hand before yanking down a press conference curtain.

    But, on Tuesday night, Riley Curry, daughter of Warriors guard Stephen Curry, might have been suffering a little jet lag after her trip to Cleveland from the San Francisco Bay Area.

    The typically spunky toddler definitely looked sleepy on the biggest sports-related night of her father's life after the Dubs beat the Cleveland Cavaliers in Game 6 of the NBA Finals.

    As Curry smiled from ear to ear, and mom Ayesha Curry jumped for joy, Riley's eyes looked a little droopy and she barely said a word. The clincher though? As Dad leaned in to give his daughter a kiss, she pulled away, rejecting him.

    She was able to pull out a small smile, albeit with her tongue out, a little later, posing formally with the team's golden trophy with her family.


    To God be the glory!!! So very proud of @wardell30 and the @warriors 😄😄😄💛💙

    Riley Curry fans were forgiving though. The San Francisco Chronicle tweeted out "Let's be real, Sleepy Riley Curry the highlight of the Warriors trophy presentation."
