The 2-time MVP would not miss out on spending valuable time with the kids from his foundation. Started by him and his wife Ayesha Curry, the ‘Eat.Learn.Play’ foundation was formed to provide nutritious foods to kids in need and, most importantly, help them in finding their potential. The Warriors Guard has provided over 25 million meals so far through this foundation. However, in the latest gathering, the center of focus was not just the kids, but Curry himself.

The new video has revealed Curry’s soccer skills, but also his apparent love for Messi’s world-famous rival.
