Curry's classy response to 9-year-old girl's letter


//

Golden State's Steph Curry led Under Armour to make a huge change to their footwear website after receiving a letter from a nine-year-old girl.

A letter to Curry by a young girl named Riley from Napa in California pointed out that the NBA star's signature shoe - Curry 5 - was not available under the 'girls' section on the Under Armour website. 

They were listed under the 'boys' section instead, and also had the ability to be customized, which the nine-year-old took issue with. 

"I know you support girl athletes because you have two daughters and you host an all girls basketball camp. I hope you can work with Under Armour to change this because girls want to rock the Curry 5's too," Riley wrote.

Three days later the two-time MVP replied in the best possible way, posting a letter of his own to social media.

"Hey Riley, I appreciate your concern and have spent the last two days talking to Under Armour about how we can fix the issue," he wrote.

"Unfortunately, we have labeled smaller sizes as 'boys' on the website. We are correcting this now!

"I want to make sure you can wear my kicks proudly - so I am going to send you a pair of Curry 5's now and you'll be one of the first kids to get the Curry 6."

The three-time NBA champion went one step further too, hinting at giving some special recognition to young female basketballers like Riley in the new year.

"Lastly, we have something special in the works for International Women's Day on March 8th, and I want you to celebrate with me!" he said.

"More to come on that, but plan to be in Oakland on that night! All the best!"

Within a few hours of Curry's tweet, fans already noticed that Under Armour had updated their website to reflect the changes Riley requested.

The Warriors have been without their All-Star point guard since he suffered a groin injury during a loss to the Milwaukee Bucks on November 8.

Golden State head coach Steve Kerr says Curry will return to action on Saturday when the Warriors face the Detroit Pistons in Detroit.

The Warriors have gone 5-5 in Curry's absence. 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.
