Stephen Curry was impressed with his father correcting his mistake of not thanking his son after asking for his autograph on his shirt in a viral video

Golden State Warriors superstar Stephen Curry is known for many things.

He’s the NBA‘s all-time leader in 3-point field goals, a two-time MVP, a two-time scoring champion, and he has four championship rings as a member of the Warriors.

But an interaction with a young fan following Golden State‘s most recent win over the Los Angeles Lakers has melted hearts around basketball and elicited a surprising reaction from Curry himself.

After the Warriors defeated the Lakers 134-120 on Tuesday night, Curry stopped on his way back to the locker room to sign an autograph for a young admirer.

But what happened next will have endeared this youngster — and his father — to Curry for life.

Curry’s kind gesture

As Curry walked back to the locker room, his head was turned by a young fan shouting his name.

The kid’s father asked if Curry could sign his son’s jersey — and Curry immediately obliged once he saw the young fan was donning his high school jersey from Charlotte Christian.

Curry happily signed the jersey and joked about reacquiring it — but the kid, positively beaming, forgot to thank the Warriors superstar, such was his elation.

His father quickly reminded him to thank Curry for taking the time to autograph the white #20 jersey, and Curry was visibly impressed at the interaction between father and son.

Social media applauds Steph

The interaction quickly went viral on Instagram and on X (formerly Twitter), with fans praising Curry for this small act of kindness that could last in the memory for a lifetime.

One person on X said that a moment like this makes being a fan “so special,” while another remarked that Curry was “so wholesome” in his interaction with the young man and his dad.

Multiple users commented on Curry providing inspiration for future generations as a rare media- and fan-friendly superstar.

But this sweet gesture toward a young fan shows that the Warriors sharpshooter does indeed have room in his heart for
