Mark Stevens, a partial owner of the Golden State Warriors, pushed Kyle Lowry as the Toronto Raptors star dove into the stands to save a ball during game three of the NBA finals.

The Warriors released a statement after the incident:

“Mr. Stevens’ behavior last night did not reflect the high standards that we hope to exemplify as an organization. We’re extremely disappointed in his actions and, along with Mr. Stevens, offer our sincere apology to Kyle Lowry and the Toronto Raptors organization for this unfortunate misconduct. There is no place for such interaction between fans, or anyone, and players at an NBA game.”

Mr. Stevens will not be in attendance at any of the remaining games of the 2019 NBA Finals.

The NBA has taken matters into their own hands, however, and came to the conclusion that Stevens’ actions were belligerent. In response to his aggressive acts, the NBA has fined Stevens $500,000 and banned him from any NBA activities for one year, effective immediately.

Kyle Lowry weighed in on the situation:

“He had no reason to touch me.” Lowry said, “He had no reason to reach over two seats and then say some vulgar language to me. There’s no place for people like that in our league. Hopefully, he never comes back to an NBA game.”

LeBron James also gave his two cents on social media:

He also tweeted this out:

Personally, I don’t think that this fine is nearly enough for someone who physically assaulted a player during a game. I don’t care if you’re a fan, a celebrity (cough cough Drake), or an owner of the team; you should keep your mouth shut and your hands to yourself. There is a difference between being a passionate fan and an entitled jerk!

Stevens should be forced to sell his share of the Golden State Warriors and banned from all NBA activities for life. There is no room for him or his erroneous actions.
