Six-year-old Isaiah Simpson’s dreams were crushed when he and his mother were turned away at a Golden State Warriors game in his hometown of Atlanta in February due to a fraudulent tickets.
He had worked hard by improving his grades and saving money to get the chance to see his favorite player – Stephen Curry – in action, his mother, Alex McDonald, told the Mercury News. McDonald also cut back on spending to save for the tickets as she is a single mother who makes $13 an hour, according to the Mercury News. But their tickets were purchased through an unreliable third-party vendor and didn’t scan at the gate.

The team put the family up at the Sir Francis Drake Hotel in San Francisco, according to the Mercury News, and Isaiah got to show off his hair, which has the number 30 shaved into it, to Curry himself.
