Before the Golden State Warriors took on the Dallas Mavericks Monday night, Warriors star Stephen Curry took the time to meet Devin Harris’ nephew, 9-year-old Brayden, who lost his father in a car crash last week.
Taking a leave of absence from the team, Harris returned to the American Airlines Center on Monday to take Brayden to visit with Mavericks players, as well getting autographed items from Curry, according to The Dallas Morning News.
While visiting with players, a video emerged of Curry appearing to console a young Brayden before heading back into the tunnel.

Harris did not play against the Warriors and told media members he has no timetable when he would return.
“I can only sit in the house for so long,” Harris told the Dallas Morning News. “And these are my brothers, too. I spend every day with them, so just to be able to be around them has to be a healing them for me as well.
“I came to spend some time with my nephew to try to get his mind off of it.”
