Here's How Steph Curry Feels About Ayesha's Controversial Tweets

Is he really cool with his wife speaking out?

Published June 18, 2016

The anticipation for Game 7 of the NBA Finals is sky high, thanks in no small part to the ultimate trash talker, NBA MVP Steph Curry's wife Ayesha Curry.

After she took to Twitter to blatantly accuse the NBA of being rigged following the Game 6 trouncing the Golden State Warriors took last Thursday, she got in a brief spat with NBA analyst Stephen A. Smith. Like Smith, many fans have been calling for Ayesha to ease off the Twitter fingers, and to the point that her husband has had to weigh in on the recent controversy that is surrounding his wife.

“It’s kind of been an emotional and tough night all the way around," Curry told Undefeated at the post-game conference following Game 6. "They kind of profiled my father-in-law and thought he was him. They threatened to arrest him before they checked out his credentials." He continued, “That was kind of a traumatic situation where her [Ayesha’s] dad almost got arrested. So it was kind of a tough situation to deal with in a hostile environment. All in all, it’s just a game. I hope that everybody is all right.”

He added, “When it comes to Twitter and all that, everybody says stuff where you get caught in the moment. After a while, you kind of stand and calm down. Things might not be as you thought. … I don’t fault her from showing some emotion on Twitter.”

He's saying all the right things in the public to protect his wife from the flurry of hate she has received both on TV and on social media. Hopefully the heat calms down leading up to Sunday's big game.
