Lionel Messi's gift helps Steph Curry through the recovery process

Last week we learned about the really cool gift that Lionel Messi sent his pal Stephen Curry of the NBA's Golden State Warriors. For hitting 10 million followers on Instagram, the Barcelona star sent Curry a signed #10 kit.

Unfortunately, soon after the reigning NBA MVP picked up an injury during the playoffs and has been sidelined for a few weeks. During his recovery to get back on the court, Curry admits on Instagram that getting the gift that Messi sent along with all of the fan's support has helped make the road back to fitness a little easier to navigate.

Lionel Messi has experience in trying to recover from injury before a big game. Perhaps he can help Curry as he does all he can to get back and help the Warriors continue their magical record-breaking season and cap it off with another championship.

It's still really cool to see arguably the two best players in the world of their respective sports have an open discourse on social media like this. Maybe one day they can hang out and play video games or something nice us normal folk. Oh, the dream...
