Stephen Curry Dazzles off Court With Wife Ayesha at the Premier of ‘Underrated’ Documentary

Published 01/24/2023, 11:30 AM EST

NBA superstar Stephen Curry has a lot on his plate at the moment. After taking a three-week hiatus from the NBA due to a shoulder injury, the Golden State Warriors point guard returned to the court on January 10 for the game against the Phoenix Suns. The Warriors are currently the No. 10 seed in the Western Conference and with the playoffs less than three months away, they need to amp up their on-court performance to secure a spot. Amidst all that pressure, Steph managed to take some time out to attend the premiere of his documentary recently.

When Stephen Curry first joined the league, he was underestimated by many due to his lean physique and lack of size. A scouting report stated that Curry’s skills were not up to the NBA standards and termed him as unreliable. In contrast to all the misjudgement, the 4x NBA champions is now considered to be one of the best players in the league.

In between his tight schedule, Stephen Curry took time out and headed off to Utah for the premiere of the ‘Stephen Curry: Underrated’ documentary. Steph was accompanied by his wife Ayesha and mom Sonya at the Sundance Film Festival on January 23. The Curry family opted for a semi-casual look and dressed up accordingly to Utah’s chilly weather.

Curry was seen wearing a white shirt underneath two layers of a cream-colored zip-up sweater and a black puffer vest. He wore black pants, black shoes and completed the look with a watch and trimmed beard. Ayesha Curry showed up wearing a brown pantsuit and brown leather jacket with minimalistic gold jewelry and brown leather boots.
