Our Bellyitch Bumpwatch alum Ayesha Curry‘s stock has risen big time this week!
Ayesha made headlines for insinuating that the referees and the NBA were fixing game 6 of the NBA in order to force a game 7. (The Golden State Warriors and Cleveland Cavaliers will play the last game in a 7 -game series after the Warriors had a 3-1 lead)
Ayesha tweeted about it after her husband Steph Curry fouled out.
In outrage, Steph hurled into the crowd the mouth guard he always chews on while playing. He also got into the face of a ref and got ejected.
Then, longtime loud mouth sports commentator Steven A.Smith suggested that Ayesha ought to be more like Cleveland Cavalier star player LeBron James‘ wife Savannah James. (Another of our Bellyitch Bumpwatch alums)
Smith took it too far as usual, in my opinion by talking about the women’s looks too. Quit using your platform to go tit for tat with an athlete’s wife, dude!
Ayesha clapped back telling him to quit pitting women against each other.
Yeah! Tell him!
You can Google the deets yourself but I am blogging about this to point out how extra extra relevant my girl Ayesha has become in the sports world.
Now every tweet, peep or move she makes or anything she says or does get picked up by ALL OF THE MAJOR sports media outlets.
They are literally hanging on her every word.
In fact, the first clue that LeBron was returning to the Cavaliers after a brief stint playing for the Miami Heat came from a tweet by Savannah who shared a photo of the map of Ohio with the caption “Home sweet home. The countdown is real.”
But woweeeee! They’re on Ayesha’s jock for real.
Like my other girl, Bey sings in her infamous song “Formation.”
“You know you that b*#%^ that causes all this conversation.”
