Early in the fourth quarter of Game 3 of the NBA Finals between the Warriors and Raptors, Toronto guard Kyle Lowry went after a loose ball on the sideline and crashed into the courtside seats.
Golden State minority owner, Mark Stevens, pushed Lowry and cursed at him.
A couple things from the Kyle Lowry-Mark Stevens incident:
1) not good that the woman next to Stevens was reaching for the loose ball
2) the woman was totally cool with Lowry and patted him on the back
3) absolutely no excuse for Stevens shoving Lowry pic.twitter.com/KQnMpl51JC

Warriors forward Andre Iguodala was a guest Tuesday morning on The Breakfast Club radio show out of New York, and had an interesting response when DJ Envy said the one-year ban was “whack.”
“There’s more to it. It’s not just banned for a year from what I heard,” the 2015 NBA Finals MVP said. “There’s more consequences as far as his interest that he invested in the team.
“Like, all that’s gonna be gone, too.”
Stevens owns an estimated 8 percent stake in the team, which could mean a profit of roughly $180 million, after factoring in team debt, on his original investment six years ago.
Now he may be forced to sell.
🏀 Multiple sources close to the Golden State Warriors tell me Mark Stevens, the minority owner who pushed Kyle Lowry, will likely be forced to sell his shares before the start of next season … #NBAFinals #KyleLowry

I think Stevens will be okay. Just another toy for the billionaire. He’ll find something else to fill the void.
