Steph Curry was thrown out of his first NBA game during the Golden State Warriors' 115-101 loss to the Cleveland Cavaliers in Game 6 of the NBA Finals on Thursday—and his wife is really not happy about it. In a since-deleted tweet, Ayesha Curry said the league is "absolutely rigged for money … or ratings," implying it was trying to force a Game 7, and the ref's decision "was uncalled for," per USA Today. She later apologized, adding, "Police racial profiled my father and ... tried to arrest him. It's been a long night." She also complained about the officiating after Game 5. (A tweet to Steph Curry's sister got a man fired.)
