Warriors Invester Banned

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.

Lowry says the fan that shoved him in Game 3 of the NBA Finals should not be allowed to be part of the league going forward.

Lowry says Mark Stevens, the Warriors' investor who shoved him, is ``not a good look for the ownership group that they have'' with Golden State.

He's also thankful for the support he's gotten from other NBA players, including LeBron James.

The Warriors host the Toronto Raptors in Game 4 of the NBA Final on Friday night. The Raptors lead the best-of-seven series 2-1.
