The girl, whose name is Riley, wrote a letter to Curry on November 18, detailing an issue she had when trying to buy the Curry 5's before the start of her basketball season. The shoes are now available on the Under Armour website in the girls section and, as CBS News' Michelle Miller reports, Riley couldn't be happier about it.

Thanks to Twitter, Curry saw Riley's letter, and wrote back that since receiving her feedback, he'd been talking to Under Armor about how to rectify the situation.

It should be noted that the other team competing on this night has been periodically resting its own superstar even though he doesn't now have anything wrong with him, simply because he was hurt most of last season and they want to avoid a repeat.

"I know you support girl athletes because you have two daughters and you host an all girls basketball camp", Riley wrote. "I hope you can work with Under Armour to change this because girls want to rock the Curry 5s too".

"We've actually offered Curry signature footwear in youth sizing for boys and girls since the initial Curry 1", said Dean Stoyer, vice president of global brand communications.

The Golden State Warriors player responded to Morrison, saying he has worked with Under Armour for the past two days to fix the problem. He wanted to play, you see him all on the bench and we talked and he's just chomping at the bit to get out there, especially having a matchup like Kyle Lowry, someone he respects, and someone we all respect. "We are correcting this now".

In his letter to Riley, Curry said he planned to send her a pair of Curry 5's and promised she'd be one of the first kids to get a pair of Curry 6 shoes.

Curry also invited the 9-year-old hoops player to celebrate with him on International Women's Day next year, writing, "More to come on that, but plan to be in Oakland that night!"

"I'm just so thrilled with Steph Curry and his response and the fact that he made my daughter's day, week, year, millennium".
