Lloyd Canamore’s house in Oakland is painted blue and gold and is a landmark in the Golden State Warriors’ community.
Unfortunately, the 58-year-old Warriors’ fan is now at risk of losing his childhood home, reports KTVU.
But he’s getting help from a very famous friend.
After a neighbor stepped in and started a GoFundMe for Canamore, Warriors point guard Stephen Curry decided to help out.
KTVU reports that after his mother was misled into taking out a reverse mortgage, Canamore discovered he’ll lose the home if he can’t come up with the $350,000 owed to the bank.
“When I was in tenth grade I worked at the Coliseum (and) I was selling hot dogs and peanuts there,” said Canamore, explaining when he became a fan of the team to KTVU.
“Lloyd has been a die hard for #dubnation. We can get there and get $$ to keep Him in his home,” Curry wrote in a personal Instagram story, capturing the attention of his 30.8 million followers.

The video Curry posted was from 2018, when he and a bunch of fans were dancing in front of the festive house, which also is surrounded by team flags, celebrating the Warriors 2017-18 NBA Championship.
According to NBC Sports, a generous donation of $10,000 from an anonymous donor was added to the still growing $157,000 raised.
