Riley Curry has done it again.

The 2-year-old daughter of Golden State Warriors’ guard Stephen Curry was back behind the podium late Wednesday after the Warriors clinched the NBA Western Conference title.

And just like last week, the toddler wasn’t shy behind the microphone. She let out a big yawn (Hey, it was late), quoted a little Big Sean, asked her MVP dad to help her put on a bracelet and then played behind a curtain.

“I think she’s taking advantage of the moment for sure,” Stephen Curry said in a response to question about Riley. “She’s way too comfortable.”

Of course, not everyone has been a fan of Riley’s appearances in the post-game pressers. Some sportswriters complained the toddler was interfering with their ability to file game stories on deadline, though many others noted she added a little entertainment to what can be routine Q-and-As.

Curry and the Warriors will face LeBron James and the Cleveland Cavaliers in the NBA Finals starting June 4. So it’s possible we’ll see little Riley near the mic (or under a table or behind a curtain) a few more times.

Can’t say we’re complaining.
