The NBA has banned Golden State Warriors investor Mark Stevens from attending games and any Warriors team activities for one year, and has fined him $500,000 for shoving Toronto guard Kyle Lowry.
Stevens’ ban is effective immediately and will carry through the entire 2019-20 season, including the playoffs.
The NBA says its investigation found that Stevens pushed and directed obscene language toward Lowry.
