The Golden State Warriors locked down the NBA Championship in high style, with star player Stephen Curry leading the way to a Game 5 victory. But nobody was paying too much attention to the Cleveland Cavaliers or the Warriors when the confetti started flying and the celebration began.
The reason? Some slam-dunk cuteness served up by Curry’s daughters — Riley, 4, and Ryan, 1.
Resplendent in Warriors blue and yellow (with hair bows, as if that alone wouldn’t be cute enough) Riley and Ryan proceeded to charm everyone from Curry to his teammates to NBA reporters and fans.
This is Curry’s second championship in three years. He held Ryan as Riley decided her dad needed to double up on his championship headgear. GAH!

Riley also did a little celebration boogie in front of her dad, and Curry could barely continue his interview with reporter Doris Burke without laughing at his daughter’s antics.

Riley has made a splash before, charming the crowd at the 2015 NBA Finals and in postgame interviews with her pop.

Riley was, however, a little less impressed with the Larry O’Brien Championship Trophy than her dad. He kissed the trophy as Riley admired herself in its reflection, adjusting her hat sideways for a little extra flair.
The whole family — including Curry’s wife, Ayesha — is ridiculously cute and seemed thrilled to pose with the trophy. (Who wouldn’t be?)

It’s clear that Curry’s girls provide him with amazing love and support, as evidenced earlier in the finals when Ayesha posted some pregame inspiration from Riley — a video of her and her dad grooving to Kirk Franklin’s “Brighter Day.”
