Heartbroken Steph fan cries joyful tears after meeting NBA hero originally appeared on NBC Sports Bayarea
On Monday night, the Warriors traveled to Denver to face off against the Nuggets for the first of two matchups in the span of four days.
Unfortunately for one Steph Curry fan, her favorite player did not end up traveling with the team.
PJ O'Byrne, a 10-year-old Warriors fan, was in attendance for Monday's 131-124 loss to the Nuggets at Ball Arena, a game in which Curry and most of Golden State's veterans were not on-hand for.
On December 31, PJ turned 10. The one thing she wanted? To go to a Warriors game and watch her favorite player, her father Rory told NBC Sports Bay Area's Kerith Burke. In attendance with a homemade sign just for Curry on Monday night, young PJ was heartbroken that Steph wasn't there to put on a show.
Fast forward to Thursday night, the Warriors hooked PJ and her family up with tickets to Golden State's second game against Denver this week. This time, Steph was playing and made sure to stop by before the game and say hello.
Most importantly, there were happy tears this time after the Warriors' superstar signed autographs and snapped a photo with the young fan.
There is no surprise that Steph and the Warriors did what they could in order to make it up to her.
After meeting Steph, the Nuggets stepped in and added to the experience.
A Nikola Jokic jersey is great and all, but meeting Steph is priceless.
Certainly a memory that PJ and her family will remember for a long time.
