Few things make me happier than seeing couples who are not afraid to show how truly in love they are.
Monday evening when Stephen Curry accepted the NBA’s 2014-15 Most Valuable Player title; he immediately delivered a touching speech about his wife, Ayesha Curry. I love these two so much and I do not want to chop up his speech, so I’ll just provide the transcript below.
I have to start with my wife. We met when we were 14, 15 in Charlotte, North Carolina, and the last seven, eight years have been amazing. We’ve both grown into adults, moved cross country together, started a new life, and you’re my backbone.
You allowed me to do what I do, to focus on my basketball, my career, and still have a family. The sacrifices you made are unbelievable, and I can’t thank you enough for who you are as a person, how you challenge me, how you inspire me every single day.
I have a beautiful daughter with one on the way. She’s over there smiling at me. I love you so much. I can’t thank you enough for just being there for me, day in and day out. Whether I have a good game or bad game, we lose or win, I go home and things are good. That’s comforting to know and I just want to say thank you from the bottom of my heart for everything you’ve done for me. You deserve a round of applause, for sure.
It’s sweet that he can see the value of what he has in Ayesha and that he’s not afraid to verbalize it.
Love, love, love them!
