The NBA handed down their punishment to Mark Stevens, a member of the Warriors ownership group, for shoving Raptors guard Kyle Lowry in Game 3.  He was given a 1-year ban and a $500k fine.

Strvens’ ban begins immediately and will run through the entire season, including the postseason next year.


The ban is effective immediately, includes all Warriors team activities, and will carry through the 2019-20 season and postseason, the league said Thursday.

“A team representative must be held to the highest possible standard, and the conduct of Golden State Warriors investor Mark Stevens last night was beyond unacceptable and has no place in our league,” the league said in a statement. “As the review of this matter continues, Mr. Stevens will not be permitted to attend NBA games.”

It turns out putting your hands on opposing team’s players isn’t one of the perks of investing in a team.  Who knew?  Stevens and everyone else knows now.
