*Stephen A. Smith had a lot to say about Ayesha Curry’s tweets during Game 6 of the NBA Finals on Thursday, accusing the NBA of rigging the game against her husband Steph Curry’s Golden State Warriors team for money.
Ayesha and many others questioned several fouls called on Steph in the team’s loss to the Cleveland Cavaliers. She seemed to believe that the NBA gods were rigging the game to extend the series to a lucrative Game 7.
During Friday’s episode of ESPN’s “First Take,” both Smith and Skip Bayless criticized Ayesha for speaking out. Smith, however, took things a step further by comparing Ayesha to Savannah Brinson, the wife of her husband’s current Finals rival LeBron James.
“[Brinson] never brings attention to herself. She never tweets and calls out the lying. Nobody, nobody is more scrutinized than her husband, but yet she thinks about how she represents him,” Smith said.
You are not just Ayesha Curry. You are Steph Curry’s wife,” he went on to say.
“If this were Savannah acting like this, do you know how much heat LeBron James may have taken?” Smith continued to argue.
Watch the tirade below:
Ayesha was apparently watching the show and responded immediately, tweeting Smith, “Why are you putting two women against each other like that? You’re the one that’s out of pocket.
