Nine-year-old Riley wrote to the Golden State Warriors player as she was "disappointed" there were no "Curry 5" for sale under the girls section of the Under Armour website, but they were available for boys. I am a big fan of yours.
Although the Warriors were without Steph Curry and Draymond Green, the Toronto Raptors clash with Golden State was one of the most hyped in the early portion of the National Basketball Association season.
The shoes have since been rebranded in the girls section of UA's site as "Grade School UA Curry 5". They're asking young, fairly inexperienced players to fill roles of National Basketball Association superstars and tonight, versus one of the league's deepest teams, we could see that if that's what they're relying on in a seven game series in the playoffs, things might not turn out how they have the past four years for them.
Sure enough the shoes are now available to girls and Curry even promised to send the trainers to Riley and invited her to a Warriors game on International Women's Day on 8 March 2019. In 12 games this season, Curry is averaging 29.5 points, 6.1 assists and 5.0 rebounds per game while shooting 51.5 per cent from the floor.
Curry also hosted a girls basketball camp last summer, an event Morrison referenced in her letter.
"We are correcting this now!" the two-time league MVP wrote in a letter back to the Golden State Warriors' fan, who lives in Napa, California.
The Golden State Warriors eight-game win streak over the Raptors ended on Thursday night before a bellowing Toronto crowd revelling in what could be a preview of the National Basketball Association finals.More news: House Democrats nominate Pelosi to lead them
Days later, Riley got a handwritten response from Curry.
Not only did Curry talk to Under Armour about fixing the problem (and getting the shoes categorised correctly on the website), he's going to send her a pair of the shoes she wanted, plus a pair of his newest design.
"More to come on that", he wrote.
"I hope you can work with Under Armour to change this because girls want to rock the Curry 5's too".
In what should've been Kawhi's night to bask in all on his own, some dude named Durant had other plans, matching Leonard's season-high and raising him a game-high in points while shoving an egregious 51 down the Raptors' throats and nearly single-handedly stealing one for the ailing Warriors, who were without Steph Curry and Draymond Green.
Curry has been outspoken about equal opportunities for women in the past.
