Sunday, Curry – the NBA star’s animated likeness anyway – made a brief appearance on “Family Guy” in which he and the series’ main character, Peter Griffin, spoofed Curry’s NBA playoffs postgame news conferences with his daughter Riley sitting on his lap.
In the show, Peter meets Curry for the first time and asks if he could sit on his lap after the next game. Because this is TV, Peter’s request made perfectly good sense and the two-time NBA MVP agreed.
If you watch “Family Guy” regularly and have watched Riley at a press conference, you probably had a good idea about how this would go down. And you still laughed because it’s hilarious – even if it’s not as charming as the original with Riley.
For your entertainment, we present both Sunday’s “Family Guy” segment and an original NBA postgame news conference excerpt with daughter Riley below.
