Roundtable: We’re OK with Ayesha Curry but divided on Nikola Jokic
Caster Semenya’s case and Tiger Woods’ White House visit also spark a bigger conversation around race, sports and gender
The Undefeated’s Roundtable takes on the hottest trending topics and events around sports, race and culture.
Ayesha Curry made social media headlines after the airing of an episode of Jada Pinkett Smith’s Red Table Talk. The mom of three and wife of Golden State Warriors All-Star guard Stephen Curry shared her vulnerability with balancing family while dealing with the disproportionate level of attention she receives compared with her husband. And she “hates” women lingering around her husband.
“Something that really bothers me, and honestly has given me a sense of a little bit of an insecurity, is the fact that, yeah, there are all these women, like, throwing themselves, but me, like, the past 10 years, I don’t have any of that,” Curry said. “I have zero — this sounds weird — but, like, male attention, and so then I begin to internalize it and I’m like, ‘Is something wrong with me?’ ”
Three men of The Undefeated — Domonique Foxworth, Justin Tinsley, and author and columnist Bill Rhoden — speak up about Curry’s right to share her honest feelings and social media’s reactionary scoffing, as well as the problematic ruling around the unfair case of South African runner Caster Semenya, Tiger Woods’ latest interaction with President Donald Trump and the hype surrounding Nikola Jokic.
