That’ll teach Golden State Warriors minority team owner Mark Stevens to keep his hands to himself and to watch what he says. 
The NBA’s banned him from games effective immediately and for the entire 2019 / 20 season including playoffs, as well as any Warriors team activities plus fined him $500,000. 
The penalties follow a league investigation which also found Stevens directed obscene language toward Raptor’s Kyle Lowry when he shoved him during last night’s Game 3 of the NBA Finals .

Lowry ran down a loose ball and jumped in the air as it was going out of bounds, landing in the lap of a man.
A woman standing next to him patted Lowry on the back while the man sitting next to her shoved the player.
Lowry complained to officials and the man, later identified as Stevens, was escorted out of the arena.
The team says they and Stevens ”offer our sincere apology to Kyle Lowry and the Toronto Raptors organization for this unfortunate misconduct.
“He had no reason to touch me,” Lowry said following the game. 
“He had no reason to reach over two seats and then say some vulgar language to me.  There’s no place for people like that in our league, and hopefully he never comes back to an NBA game.”
