Warriors Minority Investor Mark Stevens Banned From NBA Games After Pushing Toronto’s Kyle Lowry

Basketball | 6/12/19

Mark Stevens, the minority owner of the Golden State Warriors who pushed Kyle Lowry during an NBA Finals game has been banned from the NBA for one year and might be forced to sell his stake in the team. The incident happened when Lowry was chasing a loose ball and fell into the crowd. As he got up, Stevens shoved Lowry and said something. After the game, Lowry made it clear that he was displeased with the actions of the Warriors minority owner. The NBA listened, and now Stevens future with Golden State is in doubt.

Since that moment, the Raptors have continued to dominate the NBA Finals. Game Four was another win on the road for Toronto, who are proving that the spotlight isn’t too much for them. Game Five saw the return of Kevin Durant to the Warriors lineup, which added a much-needed energy boost. Unfortunately, Durant injured his Achilles in the second quarter and had to leave the game. The Warriors lost a 14 point lead but managed to win the game 106-105 in the last minute. Game Six will return the series to Oakland, and return Lowry to the scene of his incident with Mark Stevens.
