"We're 1000 Percent Like The Most Normal People On Earth:" Stephen Curry's Wife Ayesha Curry
NBC Bay Area ^ | Friday, Apr 25, 2014 | Cheryl Hurd and Riya Bhattacharjee

Posted on 04/26/2014 1:17:21 PM PDT by nickcarraway

She's a wife, a mom and Golden State Warriors star Stephen Curry’s biggest cheerleader.

Ayesha Curry wears a lot of hats, but on Thursday night she was focusing on only one thing: How to keep her husband focused on leading his team to victory in the NBA playoffs against the Los Angeles Clippers.

More than 20,000 fans filled Oracle Arena to cheer the Warriors on until the very end of Thursday night's Game 3 nail-biter -- the Clippers won 98-96 -- and a very emotional Ayesha was among them.

“Our day-to-day life isn’t this,” she said, referring to the crazed fans and the flashing bulbs at Oracle. “We are completely, 1,000 percent like the most normal people on earth. Our night consists of lying in bed and watching HGTV.”

Curry: 'Obviously it's a 'must-win' in Game 4 on Sunday' A former model and actress, Ayesha met Curry in high school and they became college sweethearts.

She told NBC Bay Area in a pre-game interview Thursday that, for the couple, it’s always “family first.” Their world centers around their faith and their little girl, Riley.

On Thursday, as thousands got ready to watch Stephen take on the Clippers, Ayesha was busy taking care of the little things.

“Usually I cook a pre-game meal. It’s usually some sort of pasta, and if not pasta, and I’m not cooking, then its Subway,” she said. “He [Stephen] takes a pre-game nap, and Riley and I kind of do our thing during that time to give him a little bit of clarity of mind, a little relaxation before all the big stuff happening over there.”

Ayesha described Curry as a “great dad.”

“He’s so hands on, he’s fantastic, he learned from the best -- his dad’s amazing, so you know the apple doesn’t fall far from the tree," she said.

In his fifth season as a guard with the Warriors, Curry’s schedule is nothing short of rigorous.

Golden State Warriors 2014 Playoffs Highlights “It’s always trying to find the balance in the chaos and every day we are working on that,” Ayesha said.

Ayesha's Twitter feed is filled with Vine videos and pictures of Riley and Stephen, giving fans an inside look at the Curry family. One of her YouTube videos shows her and Stephen talking about their relationship candidly, talking just like any other 20-somethings.

They joke about “who wears the pants in the family” (“I think we got the 50-50 thing down, right?” Ayesha asks Curry, laughing), nicknames (Curry calls Ayesha “ishiboo”), favorite restaurants (El Paseo) and Ayesha’s favorite shows (Revenge, Teen Mom 2 and American Horror Story).

The video gives fans a look at Stephen’s playful side. At one point he even teases Ayesha about her favorite team (Let’s see, um, uh, they play in Oakland…?).

The Currys will be back at the Oracle Arena Sunday as the Warriors will try and even the series in Game 4.

That, obviously, is a must win for both of them.

The referees let Curry know that he is not an "elite player" yet, so they won't be calling fouls against him.

The NBA has a policy among referees that star players get different calls than non-star player. It's one of thew worst parts of the NBA.

The NBA is known for having referees who call fouls on star players..LeBron James flops all over the place, so does Blake Griffin, they never get called on it. I’m all for abolishing the foul call, just let the players play the game, let them decide on the floor who is the better team..let them play, like they did in the 80s, the way the game was played in the 80s you would never see that today

These people aren’t ‘normal’ and they’re not a part of us. Compared to the rest of us they might as well be aliens from another planet.

Same goes for politicians, actors, and employees of government.

They live in a different world.

I’d be happy if travelling was called whenever it happens. Hint: you are not aloud to take three steps towards the hoop for a shot just because the ball is changing hands.

It’s disgusting to me. They also let star players travel, etc. The NBA referees are a huge factor in playoff games. It’s turned the NBS into something like professional wrestling.

Refs decide outcomes of games all the time..here is a hint, whenever you see Bennett Salvatore refereeing a game just know someone is gonna get royally screwed..they always have him referee a game when they have an agenda

Blake Griffin is the worst. He should be a soccer player or an actor. He acts like he’s a 90 year old frail grandmother. Flopping needs to end.

In a game the other night Chris Paul flopped backwards and the replay showed he hadn’t even been touched.

I hate the Floppers, that is what us Laker fans have been calling them for years..yet Blake Griffin gets KIA Commercials for his “Acting” ability..did you see what he did to that Warriors fan during Game 1, spilled a drink on him, so obvious that was intentional. Hope the Warriors win tonight..I know the “Rules” Laker fans cant root for NorCal teams but I just hate the Floppers and besides, Doc Rivers coached the Celtics, strike 3

Manu Ginobli perfected the art of flopping.

Actually if you want to go back to old school days, Vlade Divac perfected the art of flopping

I still think Griffin is worse. He’s a lot bigger than Ginobli too. Plus, Ginobli grew up watching soccer.

In college ball, guards regularly take 3 steps. Watching the feet of big guys posting up, frequently after dribbling, they'll move their pivot foot as they jump to their final shot position. In the NCAA tourney, these guys were taking FOUR AND EVEN FIVE STEPS just before the shot SEVERAL TIMES. No whistle; count it. And I only watched a few games!

In game 2 they didn’t call a single foul on Paul or Griffin, no matter what they did. The Warriors have been really screwed in all 3 games.

Blake does it and gets rewarded with TV commercial spots..Clipper fans are basically Laker haters who need someone to root for..Id love to have Ginobili on this team, he’s a damn good player, flopper, yes, but Tony Parker flops too but he’s also really good

Game 3 they pretty much screwed themselves..that is a game they could have won but they put themselves in too deep a hole..don’t expect Griffin to EVER foul out of a game, same goes for CP3, remember who handed him over on a silver platter to the Clippers, David Stern

LOL true..I love seeing the Clippers get their much needed karma..everything going on with Donald Sterling, gee I wonder if there would have been the same outrage had he trashed Republicans on that audiotape, my spidey senses tell me the answer would have been no

Agreed. The refs are hosing the Warriors.

And I’m a Clippers fan.

These days if you are ‘normal’ there is something mentally wrong with you. Call the cops, feds, etc. and get you classified as mental.

See Soviet Union/Mental Instution, etc.

But we don’t lock them up, we just make them ‘disabled,’ and not eligible for firearms, etc.

And most stupid, too.
"1000%" is meaningless...

I wonder if this erudite wonder also uses the word "deader..."
