Wife of Stephen Curry says game is ‘rigged’

CLEVELAND » Stephen Curry lost his composure tonight. His wife, Ayesha, might have too.

Near the end of the Golden State Warriors’ Game 6 loss to the Cleveland Cavaliers, the wife of the league’s two-time MVP put this out on Twitter: “I’ve lost all respect sorry this is absolutely rigged for money … Or ratings in (sic) not sure which. I won’t be silent. Just saw it live sry.”

Within minutes, the Tweet was deleted from her account.

A little later, she explained via Twitter: “Tweeted in the heat of the moment because the call was uncalled for.”

She was referring to the sixth foul that was called on her husband, which resulted in his disqualification — his first since Dec. 2013 — and then his ejection. Curry earned the latter by hurling his mouthpiece into the crowd.

Ayesha Curry offered more explanation, and an apology, in a subsequent Tweet.

“Police racial profiled my father and told him to remove credentials and tried to arrest him,” she wrote. “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.”
