Earlier this month, Fil-Canadian baller Zachary Walker went viral after he showed off his handles during a halftime exhibition at a Toronto Raptors game.

Not only did Walker's showing get shared on the NBA's official Instagram account, it caught the attention of the 10-year-old's idol, Golden State Warriors point guard Stephen Curry, who followed Walker on IG and sent him an inspiring message.

As if that wasn't enough, Walker then got to meet his idol Curry in person, prior to today's tiff between the Warriors and the Raptors.

Check out that moment below:

Unfortunately for Walker, Curry won't be playing in this game, as he's still being held out by the Warriors as he recovers from a strained left groin.
