Steph Curry Wins the NBA Finals as Riley Curry Wins Our Hearts (VIDEO)

Stephen Curry may have won the NBA Finals on Tuesday, but Riley Curry is still the biggest star.

The Golden State Warriors defeated LeBron James and the Cleveland Cavaliers last night 105-97 to win the NBA championship, ending a 40-year streak without a finals win in game 6.

On hand to celebrate the 27-year-old’s huge career win? America’s littlest sweetheart — daughter Riley.

The 2½ year old joined her mother, the basketball star’s wife Ayesha Curry, in Cleveland to cheer on Daddy — all the way to victory.

The toddler hugged her father on court after the big win, and kept her yawning at bay.

Riley’s been hamming it up for the camera throughout the championship, often joining her dad for his post-game interviews.  The spotlight stealer danced, mumbled, and even played in the curtains behind stage while her superstar father navigated his press interviews.

Riley is one of my favorite toddlers! She’s seems so sassy and full of life and love!

I’m not a Warriors fan because I don’t understand basketball for the life of me. But the reason why I am beyond happy that they won is because I’m a Bay Area, California native where the team is from, and because I can’t stand LaBron James.

Now that the Warriors did win, I hope that it brigs more and more national attention to the team. Not to mention that Riley is cute.

BTW, local Bay Area California news…Stephen and his wife are expecting child #2 within the next month and a half.
