Following the Golden State Warriors' defeat at Quicken Loans Arena in Cleveland on Thursday night, the Internet exploded as Stephen Curry's wife, Ayesha, went on a Twitter rant that touched on a lot of sensitive subjects, including NBA conspiracy theories, referee motivation and a "racial profiling" incident involving Ayesha's father that occurred before the ball was tipped
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:— Ayesha Curry (@ayeshacurry) June 17, 2016

Golden State Warriors guard Stephen Curry says his father-in-law "almost got arrested" when he was mistaken for a renowned fake credential con artist Thursday night at Quicken Loans Arena.
NBA security was on alert during Game 6 of the NBA Finals to find David Aminzadeh, who previously has sneaked in to countless major sporting events, an NBA official told The Undefeated. Quicken Loans Arena security checked the credentials of the father of Curry's wife, Ayesha, because they thought he looked like Aminzadeh, before determining they were mistaken, an NBA official said.
Stephen Curry was briefed by an NBA official about the situation with his father-in-law after he spoke to media following Game 6. Aminzadeh was never found by NBA or Quicken Loans security during Game 6, the NBA official said. The con artist previously had been arrested at the 2015 NBA All-Star Game dunk contest in Brooklyn, N.Y., according to the official.
And when Spears caught up with Steph after the game as the team left the arena, the star Golden State Warriors point guard said:
"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. 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."
This is a controversial topic that will likely need further explanation before any opinions can be formed. But regardless of why it happened, it appears that the incident was an additional burden Steph had to carry on his shoulders throughout the course of the night.
Not like he had enough on his plate already to deal with or anything ...
