Ayesha Curry, wife of league MVP Stephen Curry, lost her temper after her husband was ejected in the fourth quarter of Thursday’s Game 6 loss to the Cleveland Cavaliers.
Curry, who finished with 30 points, fouled out for the first time since December 2013 for a reach-in foul on LeBron James with 4:43 left in the game. An irate Curry flung his mouthguard, which hit a fan at courtside. The referees immediately ejected Curry with a technical foul.
Moments after Curry’s ejection, Ayesha 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 (sorry).”
Clearly, Ayesha and the Golden State Warriors fans are unable to digest the fact that there will be a Game 7 on Sunday after the team went up 3-1 in the series last week. If the Cavs win on Sunday, they’d become the first team in Finals history to win the championship from a 3-1 deficit.
Ayesha Curry deletes tweet
Ayesha was wise to delete the tweet a few minutes later.
Earlier on Thursday, Ayesha Curry had also complained about how the bus carrying the Warriors team’s friends and family was delayed before tip off. In fact, Ayesha went as far as to imply that it was a tactic being used by the Cleveland Cavaliers, an accusation which the team has denied.
ESPN’s Brian Windhorst reported: “Team sources told ESPN that the bus was delayed because of congestion in the Cavs’ underground parking garage due to the volume of usage just before the start of the game.
“Part of this delay was because of the arrival of Beyonce and Jay Z, and the Warriors’ party was unable to make it into the arena for the start of the game, a Golden State source told ESPN.”
Warriors fans have been mouthing off about the NBA being rigged ever since Draymond Green was suspended for Game 5 of the series. Will these tweets come back to haunt Ayesha Curry and the Warriors on Sunday?
