Imagine your shooting some hoops in front of your house by yourself and out of nowhere an unlikely teammate shows up. That's just what happened to one lucky kid when four-time NBA champion Stephen Curry appears out of nowhere, walks up to him, takes the ball and shoots. It was such a big deal that Andrew started a TikTok account to post the proof. His one short video has gotten more than 650,000 views so far and counting.

"I Met Stephen Curry"

Curry is known for working with and meeting his younger fans any chance he gets, so it makes sense that when he saw this kid playing ball that he decided to join in and take some of his famed three-point shots. The video simply captioned, "I MET Stephen Curry," has received more than 1,000 comments since being posted a week ago. When one commenter asked how he met Curry, Andew replied with what sounds like a dream come true for any NBA fan, "He just pulled up to my house." And when asked if he also got a photo, he replied, "Yess sir."  While many asked for the backstory (because who wouldn't want the full story of why an NBA champion is just strolling down a random street?), Andrew has yet to post any more details of his chance encounter.

Curry Is Known For Working With Children And Children-Based Charities

Helping kids with their love of basketball is not new to Curry. Last month, Curry, along with Snoop Dogg, spent a day at the Long Beach Boys & Girls Club at the John & Alice Wallace Petrolane Center playing basketball with the kids on their newly refurbished court. "This is the beginning of, hopefully, an amazing journey for you, not just in sports but in life," Curry told the kids at the event. "We want to provide a space where you can come enjoy yourself and get lost in the fun, lost in the competition, invest in yourselves." Curry's Curry Brand, powered by Under Armour, helped to unveil the refurbished court that Damion Scott, comic book artist, helped redesign.

Along with his wife Ayesha, Curry also launched the charity Eat. Learn. Play., a nonprofit organization that is "committed to fighting childhood hunger, ensuring access to education & enabling active lifestyles," according to the bio on the foundation's Instagram page.
