Last night's Finals Game 6 between the Cleveland Cavaliers and the Golden State Warriors was largely an embarrassment for the Dubs more on in The Dub Sack but for the second game in a row it felt not only like the Warriors were barely even in it in the first quarter, but it sparked fans to suggest that the NBA has rigged this thing to go to seven games for their own profit. And guess who else thinks this! Steph Curry's wife.
The often candid Ayesha Curry tweeted the below, as NBC Bay Area noted, at the end of the game, possibly reacting to Steph getting ejected from the game with four minutes left to play.
She later deleted the tweet after it had been retweeted 80,000 times, and apologized.
tweeted in the heat of the moment because the call was uncalled for.— 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
Additionally, she was PISSED about how long they made the Warriors' families' bus wait to off-board and enter the stadium, which they weren't allowed to do until 9 p.m. local time, just as the game was beginning.
10 mins til game time and the whole teams families are sitting here on a bus. They won't let us in yet. Interesting tactic though. Again.— Ayesha Curry (@ayeshacurry) June 17, 2016

Still waiting. At least 100 of us. 🙄🤔— Ayesha Curry (@ayeshacurry) June 17, 2016
AND she says her father, despite wearing credentials, was racially profiled and nearly arrested.
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
Regarding that, during the post-game press conference, Curry said, "They kind of profiled my father-in-law and thought he was him. They threatened to arrest him before they checked out his credentials. It's kind of been an emotional and tough night all the way around."
Also, Steph is sorry that when he threw his mouthguard it hit a fan.
Meanwhile, many on Twitter (ahem, Cavs fans) decided to mock Ayesha's quickness to tweet.
