NBA Finals: Baby ‘Stuff Curry’ and ‘Cry Baby LeBron’ are Taking the Media by Storm (VIDEO)

Ten month old Landon Benton is an Instagram star with close to 80,000 followers and is affectionately now known as Stuff Curry, after the popular Golden State Warriors player Steph Curry.

The moniker came by accident.

In fact, Landon’s mom, Jessica Benton, didn’t even know of Curry and thought a commenter calling her baby Stuff Curry was being mean like some others who have, unfortunately, criticized her cute cherubic baby’s loveable rolls.  Jessica told ESPN  that she Googled the term and found the NBA star. And the rest is history, as they say.

The Illinois mom has since taken it upon herself to outfit her baby in Warriors jerseys and gear and reclaim and play up the name to the baby’s fans, TODAY reported.

And also since then, baby Benton’s career has taken off. He’s been featured on UK’s DailyMail and other sites.

He recently starred in a spoof of an NBA Finals after game press conference along with another baby cast as  “Cry Baby LeBron on Jimmy Kimmel Live!   The Cleveland Cavaliers 5-time NBA champ and MVP, LeBron James, is dad to our Bellyitch Bumpwatch alum, Savannah Brinson James

He and baby LeBron were also part of a recent Jimmy Kimmel Live video/interview too.

Benton’s mom is an advocate against bullying after her older son committed suicide at age 20. He had been bullied as a teen.

Just in time for Father’s Day, Under Armour releases the Chef Curry ‘Dad Shoe’

Our fave sports dad Steph Curry is married to our Bellyitch Bumpwatch alum Ayesha Curry, and is having a great week not just because his Golden State Warriors NBA team are up 3-1 in the NBA Finals.

Also this week, athletic brand Under Armour released its latest permeation of his name brand shoe,  the new Curry 2 Low Chef colorways.

I think they are cute but they were re-branded by the Internet as the dad shoe. The memes and jokes are hilarious! Under Armour should take all this Twitter ribbing as a positive. Father’s Day is just around the corner.

Make lemonade.

And the red older version is cute too and an alternative to the white and grey ones.

Complex Sneaker’s Twitter Account has assembled the best. Here are some of the funny tweets and Memes.


Some people renamed the shoes
