LeBron James and Steph Curry may be superstars on the court, but the real showstoppers of the NBA are their wives, Savannah Brinson and Ayesha Curry! While an ESPN pundit tried to pit them against each other, they’re actually more alike than you’d think. Click through to see why!
Forget LeBron James, 31, and Steph Curry, 28; we’re obsessed with Ayesha Curry, 27, and Savannah Brinson, 29! Ayesha was furious with Stephen A. Smith after the ESPN host compared her to Savannah for their respective behavior on the sidelines; there’s no reason to turn two women against each other. Ayesha and Savannah have so much in common with each other, while still being unique, fabulous women. Read on for four important facts about them!
Professions: Savannah’s an entrepreneur, and Ayesha’s a total foodie!
For just 29, Savannah’s one hell of an accomplished businesswoman. She started a kids’ furniture line with James in 2010, called Home Court by LeBron James, which included everything from dressers to beds and desks. Savannah opened a bevy of Miami-based juice bars called The Juice Spot in 2013. You can go to The Juice Spot for organic, raw unpasteurized cold-pressed juice and smoothies!
Ayesha’s got that passion for healthy foods, too. This impressive woman has a popular lifestyle blog that covers everything “faith, fitness, and family.” Ayesha’s a talented chef, and released her own cookbook, The Seasoned Life, as well as landed her own Food Network show, At Home with Ayesha! Steph sweetly supported his wife when she opened a pop-up restaurant in San Francisco in June 2016, International Smoke.
Personal Style: Savannah’s curve-concious, and Ayesha’s a little demure!
Savannah and Ayesha have different brands of sexy, and they both make it work! Ayesha’s the woman who Twitter started a movement around when Kim Kardashian, 35, posted nude photos. People lauded her for being classy, and said they’d want to marry an Ayesha, not a Kim. Yeah…that’s pretty misogynistic to call out Kim for posing nude. But the tweet storm highlighted that Ayesha has made being demure and understated cool again.
Savannah gets a little more revealing with her looks than Ayesha, and that works just fine for us! She’s so beautiful, and always picks outfits that look incredible on her enviable figure. She lets amazing, curve-skimming dresses do the talking.
Their Famous Families: Life with Steph and LeBron!
Savannah and LeBron were high school sweethearts; she got pregnant with their first son, LeBron Jr. (now 11) when she was a senior. After years together, and two more children: Bryce, 9, and Zhuri, 1. The couple married in a fairytale ceremony in 2013. Finally!
Ayesha may have one of the most famous families in America. Her daughter with Steph, Riley Curry, 3, steals the scene every time she has a chance to speak at her dad’s press events. The couple married in 2011, and just had another daughter, Ryan Curry, in July 2015.
Social Media Habits: Controversy or Quiet?
Here’s where things definitely get different! Ayesha has a massive social media presence, and after the NBA finals, became embroiled in controversy for tweeting that she thought her husband’s losing game was “rigged.” Oy. She’s got an adorable Instagram, though, that she uses to show the world adorable pics of hilarious Riley!
Savannah’s much quieter on social media, hence ESPN’s gross comparison between the two women. She’s active on Instagram, though she doesn’t update that often. As for Twitter…nothing!
