We've all seen in the past what Stephen Curry is able to do during the pregame for the Golden State Warriors, but this one tops the lot.
Before his team's game against the Miami Heat on Wednesday night, the league's current MVP decided to give a very special guest an experience of a lifetime.
Around an hour before the game, the Golden State star spent some time with Shawn Kennedy from Niagara Falls, New York and his family. Shawn has a rare brain cancer called Diffuse Intrinsic Pontine Glioma.

A longtime friend of the Warriors head coach Steve Kerr heard about the family, and then plans were made quickly for the team's main man to meet the young fan.
As shown in AP Sports Writer Tim Reynolds' tweet, Curry spent roughly around 15 minutes with Shawn and his family, telling him to keep being brave, and they talked about some basketball as well according to Fox Sports. He gave the youngster his warm-ups shoes, and also took him to meet some of the other players on the team.
Shawn's mother, Nicole Vathy, said: "I didn't expect anything like this. He's going to go home and talk about this all day. He really is. He's not going to stop talking about it."
Mike Esposito, a Niagara Falls citizen who has a long relationship with Kerr through basketball and helped arrange the meet said: "I just read a couple months ago that Shawn's idol was Steph Curry. I emailed Steve and within an hour, half-an-hour, he emailed back and said `We've got you.'"
Shawn's mother said that he is getting better, and he is scheduled for more tests at St. Jude's Children's Research Hospital in April to further assess his improvement. Overall, she couldn't believe what the Warriors and Curry had done for her son.
She said: "For him to do this for us, is unbelievable."
