Ayesha Curry accuses NBA of rigging Finals
Ayesha Curry, the wife of Golden State Warriors star Stephen Curry, accused the NBA of rigging the Finals during Game 6.
Her accusatory tweet came as the Warriors were trailing the Cleveland Cavaliers by double digits in the fourth quarter, minutes after Curry fouled out of the game.
Curry led the Warriors in scoring with 30 points, but was in foul trouble for most of the night, picking up three in the first half as the team struggled to keep pace with the Cavs. He was later ejected after fouling out, throwing his mouthpiece and hitting a fan in the stands with it.
Ayesha then tweeted the below message, before deleting it.
Curry later tweeted to clarify that her tweet came “in the heat of the moment.”
tweeted in the heat of the moment because the call was uncalled for.— Ayesha Curry (@ayeshacurry) June 17, 2016
She then tweeted that her father had been racially profiled at the arena earlier, and apologized for her comments.
Police racial profiled my father and told him to remove credentials and tried to arrest him. It's been a long night for me. I apologize:— Ayesha Curry (@ayeshacurry) June 17, 2016
I'm okay that we lost... I just can't take people coming at my family for absolutely no reason. Something I don't understand or stand for.— Ayesha Curry (@ayeshacurry) June 17, 2016
The Cavaliers pulled out a 115–101 win to force a Game 7 at Oracle Arena on Sunday.
