Christian athlete, and NBA superstar, Steph Curry sat down with TJ Holmes on Good Morning America (GMA) where he discussed his family and life off the court as well as his wife Ayesha Curry’s comments after game six of last year’s finals.
Ayesha called the NBA “rigged” on Twitter after her husband was ejected from the Warrior’s game 6 loss to Cleveland last year. She apologized, saying she “didn’t think about the ramifications,” but her husband saying now, he encourages her to speak her mind.

Curry even discussed dealing with “labels” people place on him. One of them is being called “soft”
Curry said that his game is really all that matters.
“I don’t know what’s in people’s minds, how they label me, how they perceive me. …. I know what I’m about, how I view myself, and my life and my style of play on the basketball court,” Curry said. Adding that it doesn’t matter “whether you think I’m soft or I’m tough or I look like I’m 16 or whatever.”
So on growing that now famous beard.
“So the backstory is as baby face back in college, I always wanted to grow a beard just to say that I could, but I could never get it to connect on this side right here,” he said showing off his facial hair.
“Six months ago, it started to connect and I got a little carried away with it and made up my own reason for a playoff beard. So this is like four months of hard work and perseverance.”[xyz-ihs snippet=”StephTJ”]
