Based solely on social media impact, Riley Curry, daughter of Golden State Warriors superstar Stephen, was most dominant figure of the 2015 NBA Playoffs.

Yet full appreciation of Rileymania requires some context. More specifically, we should acknowledge that her dad was also pretty darn adorable back when he was a young child and his father Dell Curry played for the Charlotte Hornets.
