Warriors' Curry, Green won't play vs. Raptors

Warriors' Curry, Green won't play vs. Raptors

He has been sidelined for the last 10 games, as the Warriors have gone 5-5 in his absence.

The youngster's letter didn't fall on deaf ears, thankfully, and it probably helps she shares a name with one of Curry's daughters whose nearly as big a phenom as Curry himself.

Here's to hoping Curry pulls a great event on March 8 and young Riley drives the line in her new shoes soon.

"Thanks to Riley and Stephen, we're correcting a simple yet critical error", Stoyer wrote in an email to CBS News.

In an unexpected twist, Curry not only responded, but sent Riley a pair of the coveted kicks, extended her a future invitation and got UA to change the sizing designation on the site; making the shoes more inclusive for all of his fans, regardless of gender.

Sure enough, just hours after Curry posted his response, his Curry 5 basketball sneakers were available in girls' sizes on the Under Armour website.

The point guard is a man of his word, and the Curry 5 is now listed under the "Girls Basketball Athletic Shoes" category on Under Armour's website.

Morrison and Curry's budding friendship won't stop at sneakers, though. He told Riley to plan on being in Oakland that night.

And Smith thinks the Raptors fans will suffer not seeing Curry, as it would have been one of the few chances to see him in action before the NBA Finals. "I know you support girl athletes because you have two daughters and you host an all girls basketball camp".
