Stephen Curry wasn't the only member of the Curry family to be upset by the officiating in Game 6 of the NBA Finals.

The two-time MVP fouled out of the game in the fourth quarter and was then ejected for hurling his mouthguard in the stands at the Cleveland Cavaliers' Quicken Loans Arena.

He and Golden State Warriors head coach Steve Kerr, who criticized officials in his postgame press conference, were fined $25,000 each for their actions.

But Steph's wife Ayesha Curry is immune to such monetary punishments from the NBA. After her husband's team lost to even the series at 3-3, she tweeted that the NBA was conspiring against the Warriors, before deleting the post.


ESPN reporter Brian Windhorst explained that if the NBA truly were "rigged," she has a lot to be thankful for.

Mrs. Curry then apologized and explained she was agitated because she felt her father was racially profiled as he tried to enter the building.

NBA security was allegedly on the lookout for David Aminzadeh, an infamous con artist known to sneak into major sporting events. Quicken Loans Arena security officials mistook Ayesha Curry's father for Aminzadeh before checking his credentials and realizing their mistake, according to an NBA official.

After his team's loss, Curry was briefed by the NBA on the situation.

"I was just kind of debriefed on what the security thought happened with some guy that poses with fake credentials and gets backstage at a lot of events, the NBA Finals and all that stuff," Curry said. "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.

"That was kind of a traumatic situation where her [Ayesha's] 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."
