Mark Stevens, a minority owner of the Golden State Warriors who shoved Toronto Raptors guard Kyle Lowry during Wednesday night’s NBA Finals game, has been fined $500,000 and banned from all NBA games for a year.
“Stevens’ ban is effective immediately and carries through the 2019-2020 NBA season, including the postseason,” the NBA and the San Francisco Bay Area team said in a joint statement Thursday afternoon.
Stevens, a venture capitalist, pushed Lowry early in the fourth quarter of the third game of the finals when the Raptors player pursued a loose ball and accidentally collided with fans on the sidelines. When Lowry tried to stand up, Stevens reached over and shoved him in the arm.
