For the first time in 40 years, the Golden State Warriors won the NBA Finals last night! It was a huge victory for the players, their coach Steve Kerr (did you know he's won five Finals as a player, four of which were consecutive?) and the Bay Area, in general. But the true winner in all of this is Stephen Curry's two-year-old daughter, Riley Curry. Here's why:

She's savvy enough to know that any public figure worth their salt needs a catchphrase:

She knows how to own a press conference:




 

And how to politely tell her dad to be quiet.

She understands that, in order to become America's sweetheart, one must be full of love and light and cuteness...

She (and her shadow) can dance better than your favorite pop star:

And her victory dance is just the right amount of experimental and intimidating:

What does the future hold for Riley (other than preschool)? Will she eventually sign to Drake's label? Or be a Nobel Prize winner? Or the first female Chief Justice of the Supreme Court? We'll have to wait a few more years to find out what she ends up cooking up:
