Media members angry about Steph Curry bringing his daughter to press conference

    What I really don't understand is why Curry is getting so much heat for it when no athlete before him who did the exact same thing ever has. I vaguely remember Chris Paul's son doing something similar a few years ago and there wasn't a peep from anyone about it. Maybe because Skip Bayless didn't quite have the platform he does now to add fuel to the waaahmbulance?

    I don't know that he's getting heat for it. Based on the reaction of the reporters around him after the practice today, you would think they all thought it was great, or at least a cute moment.

    I think it's just two well-known jackasses made a big deal out of it when there was nothing bad about what happened.

    Bayless did it because he knew it would get attention. Just like Tebow, just like Aikman, he wants to be talked about and he doesn't care if he's being talked about negatively.

    I don't know if Windhorst got sucked into that or if he really is that out of touch.

    First question, "What's it like being on the court when ... "

    I don't think I've ever heard him answer that question before. Holding on to the edge of my seat for the greatest answer ever.

    I'll gladly trade assignments with anyone who complains the kid caused them to miss deadline. If I can keep my own stats, file 400 words and upload video all by 10:30 at the latest on a Friday, I think I could handle an NBA conference final.

    Also, I did had a problem when Paul Finebaum asked the kid if she thought Jameis Winston was an embarrassment....

    Some media really need to get the F over themselves. Any and all of us can be replaced tomorrow.

    It was an unexpected and human moment in what is one of the most ritualized and robotic events in our society, the post-game presser. And reporters didn't like it? Well, Bayless and a reporter didn't. What fools they be. PS: Anybody who missed a deadline because they waited for or thought they needed Steph Curry to rip the lid off the Western Conference finals has only themselves to blame.
