Warriors' Stephen Curry Jokes He Will Shut Off Wi-Fi, After Wife Ayesha's Controversial Tweet


Stephen Curry, a life all a-Twitter.

Technically Incorrect: Will Sunday's NBA finals game seven become the most tweeted NBA game ever? There's every chance that someone will again tweet something troubling.

And so we've come to this: an NBA finals game seven in which the most important topic is a tweet.

 

During Thursday night's loss to the Cleveland Cavaliers in game six, Ayesha Curry, wife of Golden State Warriors star and two-time league MVP Stephen Curry, insisted that the fix was in.

 

She tweeted: "I've lost all respect sorry this is absolutely rigged for money....Or ratings in [sic] not sure which. I won't be silent. Just saw it live sry."

 

What she'd just seen live was her husband ejected for throwing his mouthpiece at the rich seats, after he'd been assessed his sixth foul -- four by the same referee, Jason Phillips.

 

She subsequently removed the tweet and said it was sent in the heat of disappointment.

 

However, Stephen Curry's pre-game seven press conference was garlanded by questions about his wife's self-expression on social media.

 

As The Washington Post reports, Curry said: "There is nothing really that's going to distract me from what's happening on the court. Yeah, I get asked about it, and what's between me and Ayesha is...the conversations about what happened, that's going to be handled."

 

One can imagine that any handling has included forceful self-expression on behalf of a number of parties, not least the NBA itself.

 

Indeed, Curry joked, "I might have to cut the Wi-Fi off at my house, though." He won't manage it at the Oakland Arena, however.

 

The NBA doesn't like being accused of corruption. This isn't exactly the first time.

 

Some might speculate that on Sunday we could see how the NBA views its two greatest stars.

 

Is LeBron James the star of the past, so not deserving of refereeing favors in game seven? And now that the NBA has its maximum number of games, will the refs suddenly be kinder to the relatively small, angelic-featured, future-of-the-game Curry? (I hope so. Warriors fan.)

What's sure is that Twitter will be the place to enjoy instant, unedited reactions.

 

The ABC announcing crew features Mark Jackson, the last (and fired) Warriors coach who has sometimes seemed envious of the team's achievements. His views sometimes come with an ill-conceived subtext.

 

Twitter, on the other hand, features anybody and everybody -- including the big star's wife who won't be silenced.

 

It's not as if Ayesha Curry's forthright tweeting is a first. Miko Grimes, wife of Tampa Bay Buccaneers Cornerback Brett Grimes, is also one who enjoys tweeting what she thinks.

 

I suspect that after Ayesha Curry's breakthrough tweet, many will be watching her Twitter account and that of some others in order to seek gems of enlightenment.

 

Will Ayesha Curry still be tweeting during the game? She didn't immediately respond to a request for comment.

 

But the very question isn't one many expected would be one of the highlights of game seven discussions.

 

Twitter is an astonishing thing. So much media impact, so little business success.

 

Dare I wish that we can say the same thing about the Cavaliers when the game is over? Yes, I do dare.
