DANIEL Padilla got the thrill of his life on Thursday when he was followed on Twitter by his idol, reigning NBA MVP Steph Curry of the Golden State Warriors.

The popular actor became one of only 574 people followed by Curry, prompting the matinee idol to tweet ‘OMG.’ That post gained 7,900 retweets and 13,000 likes in the social networking site.

Interestingly, Padilla has more followers than Curry on Twitter with his 4.03 million. The Golden State Warriors, on the other hand, has 2.77 million followers.

Padilla is obviously a big Curry fan, with the nephew of actor Robin Padilla showing off his collection of Curry's signature shoes and jerseys on his Twitter account.

The heartthrob is also a hoop junkie with a decent-enough game to be considered for inclusion in AMA University's team in the PBA D-League.
