Steph Curry’s tour of Asia with Under Armour moved from China to Seoul, South Korea on Wednesday as he works to expand the brand into the Asian market. At Curry’s first stop in China, he poked fun at teammate Klay Thompson’s recent trip to China on behalf of Anta, where Thompson failed miserably on a dunk attempt.
In South Korea, Curry took the opportunity to prove that he’s got the hops to be able to actually finish a dunk at a promotional tour, but needed an assist to make it happen. So, the two-time MVP called on his wife (and cookbook author/television host) Ayesha for some help tossing a lob.
Ayesha then threw a perfect two-handed chest pass lob to Steph, who climbed the ladder to finish it and gave an almost shocked look after he came down to his wife that she tossed such a great alley-oop lob.
Curry noted in his Instagram comment on the video he had no idea Ayesha had the vision and passing ability like that. The Curry-to-Curry lob is a #RelationshipGoals meme in real life, because who among us doesn’t want someone to throw us perfect lobs?
The Curry family weren’t the only ones that made highlights at the arena in Seoul, however, as a fan — wearing a full Curry uniform — drilled a halfcourt shot to the delight of the crowd and Curry.
Curry gave the guy a chest bump and then surprised him with some shoes and autographed them on the court. For those keeping score at home, Curry’s on-court performance on his Asia trip might have better than Klay’s, but I can bet you Thompson’s efforts at the club were far superior to Steph’s.
