Ayesha Curry is easily one of the most outspoken basketball wives. Stephen Curry’s wife had a lot to say about Thursday night’s Game 6 of the NBA Finals, and none of it was nice. Ayesha was so angry about her husband’s ejection from the game that she turned to Twitter and claimed that the NBA had rigged it in order to increase ratings and/or make more money for the league.
Stephen Curry was thrown out of Game 6 after he threw his mouthpiece and hit Andrew Forbes, the son of Cleveland Cavaliers minority owner Nate Forbes, who was sitting in the stands, according to the New York Daily News. Curry had fouled out with more than four minutes left in the game and was understandably heated.

His wife, Ayesha Curry, was also very upset as she watched the Cleveland Cavaliers turn up their game to a level that the Golden State Warriors just couldn’t compete with. Rather than giving LeBron James his props for finally getting into a zone that no one could touch, she heatedly blasted the NBA on Twitter, calling out the league for allegedly fixing the NBA Finals in order to prolong them and force Game 7.
Soon after Stephen Curry was ejected from the game, Ayesha hopped on Twitter to voice her anger. She tweeted, “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 Curry later apologized for her heated tweet — sort of. In her apology for tweeting that the NBA is rigged, Ayesha brought up the fact that her father had a really hard time getting into Game 6 of the NBA Finals. It seems that Steph Curry’s wife was already frazzled before the Golden State Warriors even started to take a beating during the epic game when her father was nearly denied entry to the game.
“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.”
Apparently, the NBA has been having problems with imposters coming in and impersonating important family members of those playing in the NBA Finals. On Thursday night, police thought that Ayesha’s father was the man who had been faking NBA credentials in order to get into restricted areas during the games.

“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,” Curry told reporters after the game. “That was kind of a traumatic situation where her dad almost got arrested. So it was kind of a tough situation to deal with in a hostile environment. All in all, it’s just a game. I hope that everybody is all right.”
Ayesha Curry also criticized the NBA or maybe it was just the Cleveland Cavaliers, who she alluded had intentionally made a team bus full of Golden State Warriors players’ family late to the game.
“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 tweeted before updating just ten minutes later with, “Pulling in… It’s 9pm… Anywho… #LetsGoWarriors!!!!!!!”

Can it just be pointed out that many other players in the NBA Finals have wives, including LeBron James, and none of them are pointing fingers, taking digs at other players or accusing the NBA of fixing one of the most important games of the season.
The women of The View had a lot to say about Ayesha Curry on Friday morning and 105.1’s The Breakfast Club named her the “Donkey of the Day” for her social media outburst. Do you think Ayesha Curry’s criticism of the NBA and the Cleveland Cavaliers is called for or should Stephen Curry’s wife let the professional athletes play the game and stop saying so much?
