Stephen Curry sizes up girl's shoe issue, offers a fitting response

Riley Morrison of Napa, California, wrote to Curry to tell him she couldn't buy his Curry 5 shoes because they weren't available on the Under Armour website.

What's more? Curry told Riley not to make plans on March 8, International Women's Day, because she's been invited to a Warriors home game in Oakland for something special.
