    "I Think She's Taking Advantage of the Moment:" Steph Curry on Daughter's Antics

    There's no doubt that Golden State Warriors guard Steph Curry is the basketball world's favorite at this moment in time. And there's also no doubt that his 2-year-old daughter, Riley, is the favorite NBA child.

    During a press conference in Oakland after the Warriors beat the Houston Rockets with a 104-90 victory in Game 5, allowing them to advance to the NBA Finals, Riley nearly brought the curtains down.

    And that's no joke.

    As her dad tried to answer reporters' questions, Riley hung on the stage curtains, yanking them as she bounced up and down. She waved to the crowd sitting on her dad's lap. And she stole her father's signature move, tapping her chest and pointing to the sky.

    As Curry tried to remain focused on questions, he lost his concentration saying "Where you at? What did you say?" to a reporter with his dancing daughter in the background.

    He put one arm out to quiet her and finally submitted to her toddler energy.

    "I think she's taking advantage of the moment, for sure," he said. "She's way too comfortable."
