LeBron James wants all players to be protected especially after the Part Owner of the Warriors, Mark Stevens, deliberately pushed Toronto Raptors guard Kyle Lowry after stumbling into the crowd.
The footage shows Lowry falling into the audience, and actually missing Stevens, therefore the extended push was extremely unwarranted.
LeBron also pointed out that Lowry would’ve been punished severely if he were to react to Stevens’, resulting in possible jail-time, and Finals suspension.
The Warriors made a statement saying: "Mr. Stevens' behavior last night did not reflect the high standards that we hope to exemplify as an organization,”…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."
Stevens will not be allowed to attend any more of the remaining Final Games!

🗣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
