Raptors point guard Kyle Lowry shoved by Warriors investor at Oracle Arena during Game 3

By  | 

The Golden State Warriors issued a statement Thursday condemning the action of team investor Mark Stevens for his shove of Toronto Raptors guard Kyle Lowry during Game 3 of the NBA Finals.

“Mr. Stevens’ behavior last night did not reflect the high standards that we hope to exemplify as an organization,” the Warriors said in the statement. “We’re extremely disappointed in his actions and, along with Mr. Stevens, offer our sincere apology to Kyle Lowry and the Toronto Raptors organization for this unfortunate misconduct. There is no place for such interaction between fans — or anyone — and players at an NBA game.”

The Warriors said Stevens, who is listed as a member of the Warriors’ executive board in the team’s media guide, will not attend any of the remaining NBA Finals games and that a review of the incident was ongoing. H/T: ESPN
