Stephen Curry’s wife Ayesha Curry stands by her husband against critics who are throwing jabs against the player, following his team’s lost in this year’s NBA championship.
Stephen Curry is taking NBA Game 7 Loss really hard.
The Golden State Warriors point guard Stephen Curry received negative remarks from social media after their team lost against Cleveland Cavaliers, which served to make the devastating loss hurt more. But his wife Ayesha got his back on this trying time of his year.
According to a source from the Hollywood Life, this 27-year-old wife was Stephen Curry’s rock since their loss.
“Steph and Ayesha have been inseparable since the loss and they are really leaning on each other for mental and emotional support,” the insider dished out.
“They’ve both been clobbered in the press and on social media and don’t really know how to deal with being on the losing end and the butt of all the jokes,” the source added.
The source added that this loss was new to Stephen Curry and Ayesha but they are each other’s source of strength.
“He’s in a lot of disbelief, and so is she, but together, they’re being each other’s rocks,” the source added. “Albeit the rock isn’t as solid after being cracked by the Cavs, in time, it will be healed.”
In another report, Ayesha was also involved in a heated Twitter war against ESPN commentator Stephen A. Smith who compared her with LeBron James’ wife Savannah.
“She sits there, she doesn’t bring any attention to herself, she never tweets and calls out the league and stuff like that, and nobody is more scrutinized than her husband,” Stephen A. Smith was quoted saying, as reported by the Mail Online. “But she thinks about how she represents him and as a result she doesn’t do that.”
Ayesha Curry was not one to let this pass as she replied, “@stephenasmith why you are putting two women against each other like that? You’re the one that’s out of pocket.”
Talking to ESPN, Stephen Curry said the team’s loss hurts, after missing the nine last shots to finish the game.
“It’s not a good feeling, like I said,” the 28-year-old star player told. “At the end of the day, we want to keep this memory so that it will fuel us as we stay together as a team. This ain’t the last time [we’re] going to this stage.”
