Raptors President Masai Ujiri reportedly got into an altercation with a sheriff’s deputy shortly after Toronto won Game 6. The officer stopped Ujiri as he attempted to make his way onto the court, because he didn’t have the proper credentials.
Ujiri responded by shoving then striking the officer in the face. The Alameda County Sheriff’s Office is investigating the incident and is considering pressing charges.
There is video immediately after the altercation and Ujiri is seen being led to the court where Kyle Lowry greets him. He then joined in on the postgame festivities.

Don’t mess with the Raptors. They were were focused on taking out all of Oakland on Thursday night.
On a separate thought, I can’t be the only one who pictured Ujiri pulling out a white glove to slap the officer.
