Golden State Warriors’ MVP Stephen Curry recently made headlines … well, he actually didn’t, but his daughter Riley certainly did.
If by some divine miracle you haven’t seen it, take a look.
Now while that can be considered “cute”, “entertaining”, however you want to look at it, the media that sit through these press conferences, ask the questions, take down notes in order to meet deadlines so that you, the audience can read what’s happening in the NBA.
There are a few members of the NBA beat-writing community that have spoken out to Curry’s decision to take his daughter with him and have said that it is unprofessional.
ESPN’s Brian Windhorst, Skip Bayless and Ramona Shelburne have been the big three to criticise Curry’s choice to bring two-year-old Riley to the podium, although the latter has said that Riley was cute and it would be difficult to challenge the player to take their children away so that both the journalist and player can focus on their work.
Los Angeles Clippers guard Chris Paul has brought his son to press conferences in the past.

I don’t know if I should go No. 1,” Okafor told SI Now host Maggie Gray in an interview that will air Wednesday. “I don’t care. I just want to go to the right environment for me and the right team. I think the hype about No. 1 is more for the fans.”
