Stephen Curry visits 7-year-old fan with leukemia in the hospital

The Golden State Warriors had an off day in Indianapolis on Sunday before they get set to face the Indiana Pacerson Monday, and Stephen Curry decided to spend it in the hospital with a young fan who has leukemia.

Brody Stephens, a 7-year-old boy with acute lymphoblastic leukemia, is an avid basketball player and a Curry superfan. Upon hearing of Brody's story, the two-time NBA MVP paid him a visit.

The two traded laughs and autographed each other's jerseys during Curry's trip.

Brody was diagnosed with leukemia as a 1-year-old and appeared to have defeated it. Then in December 2015, the disease reappeared. Brody has been battling the cancer ever since.

As much as Curry and the Warriors are trying to embrace their "Super Villain" narrative, it's difficult to criticize them when you see things like this.
