Golden State Warriors’ Steph Curry recently paid a visit to the famous Ah-Sam Florists store in San Mateo, Calif., as a way to show support to reopened businesses.
The video: Curry, 33, posted the commercial sponsored by Google on YouTube on July 24.
In the video, the Warriors’ point guard visited Ah-Sam Florists, an Asian family-owned business that has been in the Bay area since 1933.
“The pandemic with the lockdown has changed all businesses,” Shawn Leong, co-owner of Ah-Sam Florists, said. “Closing the business allowed us time to think of how to pivot when we reopened.”
Mayme Leong, who has been in the industry for 50 years, showed Curry how to arrange flowers during his visit, ABC7 reported.
“He picked up flowers and I taught him how to cut it...I said, well, you play basketball, you better not use a knife because if you cut yourself you won't play again," Mayme said.
Other details: Lori Leong received a phone call from a representative of Curry’s team, asking the business if they could be part of a new commercial featuring reopening establishments in the area.
“I was surprised, wondering if this is truly happening. Or is it someone playing a hoax on us?" Lori Leong, a family relative, told ABC7. However, the call turned out to be legitimate, and Curry showed up with a camera crew days later.
Mayme also told the news network she is a Warriors fan, quipping she likes Curry more than Los Angeles Lakers' LeBron James.
