NBA: Malik Beasley, Mark Jackson, Sonya Curry memes circulate

Firstly, it’s important to say any divorce or break up is always a sad situation for the friends and family of those involved.

The Currys have been seen as the NBA’s perfect family for a long time, with Steph, Seth, and sister Sydel all proving themselves model individuals.

Many look up to the family, who have been a huge part of the Warriors fanbase, particularly through those Championship years.

It’s a sad situation, but naturally NBA Twitter was a little more cold about the situation.

The jokesters on the platform commented that the likes of Malik Beasley and Mark Jackson should flutter their eyelashes at Sonya Curry, who is soon-to-be-single.

Various Malik Beasley, Mark Jackson, and Sonya Curry memes started circulating.

Social media can be a pretty cruel place at times.

All jokes aside, we wish the Currys the best for the future and hope the family remain as strong as ever.
