The couple wasn’t just celebrating a victory for the Warriors; Steph was voted the MVP of the 2022 NBA Finals after the Warriors’ 103-90 win over Boston. The title was awarded to Steph after he won four NBA championships with the Warriors within eight years and played in seven Finals with them. Curry scored 34 points for his team in the final game on June 16, per CBS Sportsand also had seven rebounds and seven assists.
Fans seemed to be just as excited for Stephen as Ayesha was and adored the sweet moments captured between them. “Not gonna lie, that was adorable as hell. Love it! Congrats Warriors,” one person tweeted. “Love this couple,” another fan gushed. A third user added“Lol it’s funny how he’s trying to kiss her and she’s just shaking him with excitement.”
Ayesha immediately took to Twitter to celebrate her husband’s win. “On the menu tonight: SF Hot Pot with a side of Curry GOAT,” she enthusiastically wrote. On May 27, she shared a picture of her and Steph with their three adorable children, son Canon W. Jack3, and daughters Ryan Carson6, and Riley Elizabeth9, after Steph and the Warriors clinched the Western Conference title. “So beyond proud of @stephencurry30 and the @warriors !!! #wcfchamps #wcfmvp God is great!” Ayesha supportively wrote in the caption.
The big win came after Steph stood up for his wife after a Boston sports bar called Game On had a chalkboard that read “Ayesha Curry Can’t Cook.” Ayesha is an avid cook and author of several cookbooks. Steph attended the press conference after his Game 5 victory over the Boston Celtics wearing a shirt that read, “Ayesha Curry CAN Cook.”
It seems like Steph, Ayesha, and the Warriors all got the last laugh.
