Lionel Messi is a Stephen Curry fan just like all of us

Real recognize real

If you are a sports fan at all, there's no doubt you know about Stephen Curry. He's the reigning NBA MVP and one of the most exciting athletes in the world to watch. His Golden State Warriors are an amazing 20-0 to start this NBA season and he's drawing plaudits from all over the world.

It appears as if he has a new fan who you may recognize:

Steph sent Leo a special present for reaching 30 million Instagram followers. Leo promised to return the favor when Steph hits 10 million.

There are a lot of similarities between the two great athletes. I'm sure if you polled 100 knowledgeable sports fans and asked them who the five most exciting athletes to watch in the world are, about 95% of them would include these two stars.
