Finals ‘Rigged for Money:' Ayesha Curry Lets Loose on Twitter at Game 6 of NBA Finals

Stephen Curry got into Quicken Loans Arena in Cleveland without difficulty for Game 6 of the NBA Finals.

His wife didn't.

Ayesha Curry — who hasn't been shy about being outspoken on social media during these playoffs — says the bus that was carrying Golden State's family members to Game 6 of the NBA Finals in Cleveland on Thursday night was having trouble getting into the arena. In a subsequent tweet, she sent a photo from the bus as if to illustrate the troubles passengers were having with security letting them off and into the building.

"They won't let us in yet. Interesting tactic though. Again," she wrote.

Ayesha Curry later tweeted that she was finally able to get into the arena at around 9 p.m.

She again let loose on Twitter after her husband was ejected from the game with about 4 minutes to play.

"Ive 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."[[383375791, C]]

That tweet was retweeted more than 80,000 times before Curry deleted it.

Then later: "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."

Then after deleting her previous tweets, Ayesha Curry explained her tweet about the end of Game 6: "Tweeted in the heat of the moment because the call was uncalled for."
