*Ayesha Curry, the wife of Golden State Warriors star Stephen Curry, accused the NBA of rigging the Finals during Game 6 in several tweets, then accused the opposing team’s arena of racial profiling while trying to explain away her previous tweets.
Her original 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.
She deleted those messages, then tweeted that her father had been racially profiled at the arena earlier and apologized for her comments.
As for the racial profiling accusations, Mrs. Curry was somewhat justified in complaining. NBA security was already on alert last night to find David Aminzadeh, who previously has sneaked in to countless major sporting events, an NBA official told ESPN’s The Undefeated. Quicken Loans Arena security officials checked the credentials of Ayesha’s dad, because they thought he looked like Aminzadeh, before determining they were mistaken, an NBA official said.
The Cavaliers pulled out a 115–101 win to force a Game 7 at Oakland’s Oracle Arena on Sunday.
