If you watched the Golden State/Portland game last night, you likely saw Steph Curry’s wife Ayesha exuberantly chant ‘Let’s go baby!’ after her hubby drilled a triple to put the Warriors ahead midway through the third quarter. If you didn’t, let’s catch you up.
When I initially saw this, I thought it was a cute little supportive moment between two lovers, nothing more, nothing less. If I was in the NBA, I’d expect my wife to go ballistic every time I hit a shot, maybe even flash me after the game-winners. But I was forced to revisit the otherwise forgettable moment after Twitter trolls came out of the woodwork to use Ayesha’s act of support to shame the less supportive ‘hoes.’
As we all know quite well, it ain’t a Twitter war unless there’s an opposition.
Pro Tip: Find a girl who will yell ‘Let’s Go Baby!’ at your men’s league basketball games, even though you can hardly make it up and down the court.
