OAKLAND, Calif. - A 10-year-old boy who has been diagnosed with an inoperable brain tumor, met his hero, Steph Curry at the Warriors training facility last week.
Taliq Davis and his family traveled from Killeen Texas to Oakland to fulfill his wish.
Taliq has undergone multiple surgeries and suffers from debilitating pain.
According to Bay Area News Group, Taliq was so overcome with joy that he was brought to tears when he saw the players.
Warriors guard Klay Thompson came over to make Taliq feel better, but that brought more tears from the young boy.
That's when Thompson said "Go ahead and let it out. You know how many times I cried after I struck out in baseball?"
There were more tears when it was Curry's turn to meet Taliq, but according to Bay Area News Group, Curry put his arm around the boy, whispered into his ear, and Taliq stopped crying.
Taliq's mother said that it was fitting because Steph Curry has always been able to take away her son's pain.
