OAKLAND, Calif.: The NBA has banned Golden State Warriors investor Mark Stevens from attending games and any Warriors team activities for one year, and has fined him $500,000 for shoving Toronto guard Kyle Lowry.
Stevens’ ban is effective immediately and will carry through the entire 2019-20 season, including the playoffs.
The NBA said its investigation found that Stevens pushed and directed obscene language toward Lowry.
Toronto guard Kyle Lowry said the fan that shoved him in Game 3 of the NBA Finals should not be allowed to be part of the league going forward.
Lowry said Mark Stevens, the Warriors’ investor who shoved him, is “not a good look for the ownership group that they have” with Golden State. He’s also thankful for the support he’s gotten from other NBA players, including LeBron James — who he had a text exchange with Thursday.
Lowry said Stevens “shouldn’t be a part of our league.” Many other members of the Raptors offered similar sentiments Thursday.
