Steph Curry's Wife: NBA Finals Game 6 'Rigged For Money'

The wife of Golden State Warriors superstar Steph Curry tweeted that Game 6 of the NBA Finals was "rigged" on June 16.

According to, Ayesha Curry tweeted, and later deleted, "I've lost all respect sorry this is absolutely rigged for money... Or ratings in not sure which. I won't be silent. Just saw it live sry."

Ayesha tweeted the accusation after Steph fouled out during the fourth quarter of the Warriors game against the Cleveland Cavaliers, who eventually won 115-101.

Steph was going for a rebound against LeBron James when the ref called him for his sixth foul. Steph subsequently tossed out his mouth guard and accidentally hit a Cavaliers fan.

Steph was then ejected from Quicken Loans Arena.

"I definitely didn’t mean to throw it at a fan, but it happened," Steph said after the game, notes SFGate.

"I went over and apologized to him because that’s obviously not where I was trying to take my frustration out,” he added. notes that Ayesha tweeted after the game:

"tweeted in the heat of the moment because the call was uncalled for."

"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."

"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 had some choice tweets before the game, according to the Washington Post:

"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."

"Still waiting. At least 100 of us."

"They also wouldn't let our cousin into a casino today because he was wearing warriors gear."

Ayesha was not happy with the referees after Game 5, which the Warriors lost 112-97.

The newspaper notes that she tweeted: "Can refs get fined?"
