From ages 11 to 14, Stephen Curry would take the floor at what was once known as the Air Canada Centre to hone his game while his father Dell was a member of the Toronto Raptors.

Over 15 years later, Curry took the time to meet a new young sensation who recently brought about "oohs and ahhs" on the same floor at Scotiabank Arena - Fil-Canadian Zachary Walker.

Walker, a 10-year-old up-and-coming basketball star, took the floor with other members of the FIlipino Basketball Association for an exhibition during halftime of the Raptors' Nov. 12 game with the New Orleans Pelicans. With 10 seconds remaining in the five-on-five scrimmage, Walker put on a series of moves reminiscent of those that we see on a nightly basis from the Warriors' two-time MVP.

Like Curry, the 10-year-old finished his series of crossovers and hesitations with a jumper that touched nothing but the bottom of the net.

Though Curry won't be suiting up Thursday night against Toronto, he found a way to make an impact long before tip off.
