Basketball is a game that is enjoyed by many, with some fans taking their love for the game, players and team they are rooting for to heart. That sometimes means a bit of sports trash talking.
During the NBA Finals, several Boston Celtics fans took trash talk to a whole different level. Pins and T-shirts aimed at Stephen Curry’s wife, Ayesha Curry, that had been created in advance were distributed during the game. The items were designed to attack Curry’s cooking abilities. The wording on the pins and T-shirts was: “Ayesha Curry Can’t Cook.”
This all stems from a Boston bar named Game On! which first took aim at the chef’s cooking skills. Steph initially responded by wearing a shirt saying that his wife can cook in game 5 but after winning the NBA Finals, the couple teamed up to troll the entire New England town.
Ayesha Curry clapped back on Twitter and Instagram at Boston Celtics fans for the nasty trash talk toward her. After her husband, basketball player Stephen Curry, and his team, the Golden State Warriors, took home the NBA Finals win for the fourth time in eight years on Thursday, June 16, the proud wife decided to get some things off her chest.
She had gotten her hands on one of the pins and posted on her Instagram story, “These were being handed out, managed to get my hands on a few.” Hubby Stephen Curry managed to get his hands on a T-shirt. The four-ring champion posted a photo of him holding up the shirt with his right hand and holding up the champion trophy in his left and wrote, “Bye Boston! [female and male chef emojis].”
Ayesha re-posted the photo on her story and said,”[laughing emojis] (my champ).”
The chef also decided to fire back at fans on Twitter. She wrote, “On the menu tonight: SF Hot Pie with a side of Curry GOAT.”
Ayesha has been known for her love of cooking. She has published two books that are filled with easy and fun cooking recipes. Her first book was published in 2016, titled “The Seasoned Life: Food, Family, Faith and the Joy of Eating Well” and her second book, “The Full Plate: Flavor-Filled, Easy Recipes for Families with No Time and a Lot to Do,” was published in 2020.
The 33-year-old appeared on multiple talk shows such as, “The Ellen DeGeneres Show” and “Steve TV Show” starring Steve Harvey, where she showcased her cooking skills.
The mom of three also has her own YouTube channel where she posts recipes and videos of her working her skills in the kitchen.
Although some Boston Celtics fans brought a bit of trash talk Ayesha Curry’s way, it looks as it she got the last laugh in the end.
