"I love my daughter. I wake up and I go hard for her," Murray said.

Riley definitely has daddy wrapped around her finger and he does not have any issue about it.

As a matter of fact, Murray shares his feelings about his daughter constantly on his social media.

Murray is not only proud of the sneakers and their deep meaning but also he strives to teach her how to be a good person.

He, along with Riley's mother, continue to do their best to impart life lessons for her.

"Me and her mother teach her to lead," Murray said. "To be thankful, grateful and respectful."

Whether Murray gets an All-Star nod or not remains an open question. However, he is definitely an MVP in the eyes of Riley.

"She's grateful and thankful [for the sneakers] just like her dad," he said.
