Mark Stevens has officially been banned by the NBA and Golden State Warriors for his actions towards Kyle Lowry.
Dylan Byers, NBC News, reported on Thursday that prior to next season, Stevens will likely be forced to sell his Warriors ownership shares as punishment.
During Game 3 of the NBA Finals on Wednesday at Oracle Arena, Stevens pushed Lowry as the Toronto Raptors guard went into the stands to save a ball.
In addition to that, Lowry claims Stevens told him multiple times to “go f— yourself”.
The incident and fact that it turned out the fan in question was the minority owner of the Warriors, has become the biggest talking topic the day after the game.
The NBA and the Warriors are in support of Lowry and have taken action.
Everyone is calling Stevens’ actions unacceptable.
The NBA has been serious about taking the measures to inform fans that their conduct can’t cross a line with their behavior at games like Mark Stevens did.
They also are all about protecting players.
In the past they have forced an owner to sell their shares for improper conduct.
This is model to force someone like Stevens to sell his shares for being a poor representative of the league.
