NBA Bans Warriors Minority Owner Mark Stevens for One Year, Fined $500K

The NBA has banned Warriors minority owner Mark Stevens for one year from games and team activities after he pushed Kyle Lowry in Game 3 of the Finals and used vulgar language to the Raptors point guard. 

Stevens has also been fined $500,000. 

Lowry crashed into the Oracle Arena stands in the fourth quarter of the Warriors' 123-109 loss to Toronto. Stevens, who Lowry didn't even fall on, reached out and shoved the Raptors guard. Lowry also told reporters Thursday that Stevens said to "go f--k yourself."

NBC News and MSNBC senior media reporter Dylan Byers reported Thursday that Stevens will likely be forced to sell his shares of the team before next season. 

Stevens became a minority owner of the Warriors in 2013.
