During last night’s game 3 of the NBA finals Raptors star Kyle Lowry was visibly angry after he was shoved by a man sitting courtside.
During his postgame press conference, Lowry called for the fan to be banned from attending future NBA games.
It turns out that the fan in question is Mark Stevens, a minority owner of the Golden State Warriors.
LeBron James has now chimed in on the situation and blasted Harris on Instagram.
There’s absolutely no place in our BEAUTIFUL game for that AT ALL. There’s so many issues here. When you sit courtside you absolutely know what comes with being on the floor and if you don’t know it’s on the back on the ticket itself that states the guidelines. But he himself being a fan but more importantly PART-OWNER of the Warriors knew exactly what he was doing which was so uncalled for. He knew the rules more than just the average person sitting watching the game courtside so for that Something needs to be done ASAP! A swift action for his actions. Just think to yourself, what if @kyle_lowry7 would have reacted and put his hands back on him. You guys would be going CRAZY!! Calling for him to damn near be put in jail let alone being suspended for the rest of the Finals all because he was protected himself. I’ve been quite throughout the whole NBA playoffs watching every game (haven’t missed one) but after I saw what I saw last night, took time to let it manifest into my thinking 🧢 I couldn’t and wouldn’t be quiet on this! #ProtectThePlayers #PrivilegeAintWelcomeHere
The Warriors have released a statement confirming Stevens would not be attending the remaining finals games and the matter is under investigation.
That does not seem to be enough to satisfy LeBron.
