One South Carolina dad received a special early Father’s Day thanks to the help of an NBA superstar.
Jackson Smoak says his dad is a hero, so it’s no surprise he wanted to give him a great gift — a pair of Curry 6 basketball shoes.
Jackson couldn’t find his dad’s size, so he wrote a heartfelt letter to Steph Curry himself.
“He’s all the way on the other side of the coast, so I didn’t think he would respond,” the 8-year-old said. “But he did… and here we are on TV!”
Jackson wrote about the time he fell in a pool and his father saved his life.
It seems it caught Curry’s attention because he granted the little boy’s wish.
Curry sent a matching pair of shoes for Jackson and his dad and even threw tickets to a Warrior’s game.
