The Currys are taking over Thursday evening TV exactly one week after Stephen Curry and the Golden State Warriors lost their chance at a fourth NBA title in five years.
Curry said he’s still thinking about what the Warriors could have done, if anything, to defeat the Toronto Raptors but both he and wife, Ayesha Curry, said he’s turned his focus to the golf clubs.
Curry: Storybook ending great, but journey important too
In a Q&A with Bill Keveney of USA Today Sports, Curry said it was a “healthy process, to get over it.” Curry’s quest for another title has been chronicled on Facebook Watch’s “Stephen vs. The Game,” produced by his Unanimous Media company. The sixth and final episode has yet to air.
Curry was asked if it was difficult to do the show since the Warriors didn’t win the championship. From USA Today Sports:
“I understand everybody wants a storybook ending, including myself, where you go through all these ups and downs … and the reward is the [NBA] trophy. That would be the ideal ending. But it doesn’t change my willingness to do it or feel like it was a failure in terms of this year. We fought to the end and there’s always going to be one team that wins. But the journey is important as well.”
In an appearance Wednesday night on “Jimmy Kimmel Live,” Ayesha said Stephen is more concerned about his teammates — Kevin Durant and Klay Thompson — getting healthy.
“The mood right now looks like sloping greens and 9-irons and drivers,” Ayesha told Kimmel.
Curry’s ‘Holey Moley,’ ‘Family Food Fight’ take over
Stephen Curry is enjoying his offseason with golf. He told USA Today he’s a scratch golfer and enjoyed mini-golf as a child. It spawned his show, “Holey Moley,” which will air at 8 p.m. Thursdays on ABC.

Stephen told USA Today Sports:
With her “Family Food Fight” centered around families cooking together and “Holey Moley” as entertainment that is family friendly, everybody can sit down together to watch for two hours. It’s pretty special.
“Holey Moley,” which received a boost with constant commercials during the NBA Finals, is a 10-episode series that pits golfers on an elaborate mini-golf obstacle course. Each week 12 golfers compete for $25,000 with “Monday Night Football” announcer Joe Tessitore and comedian Rob Riggle serving as hosts.
“Family Food Fight” features families from around the country competing in a cooking challenge, such as preparing a minimum of six dishes, one of which is a dessert, in a two-hour timeframe. There are three family members on each time and Ayesha told Kimmel the contestants “really surprised us” and taught the judges new techniques.
The Curry clan seems to be doing quite all right.
