LeBron James hasn’t held back one bit in calling out Mark Stevens, part-owner of the Golden State Warriors, for his offensive act towards Kyle Lowry.

For those that didn’t catch the brief incident during Game 3 of the NBA Finals, Stevens shoved Kyle Lowry after Lowry fell into the seats from diving for a loose ball. According to Lowry, Stevens also went as far as saying “go f*** yourself” multiple times. Since then, James took to Instagram to state that “there’s absolutely no place in our BEAUTIFUL game for that AT ALL.” James mentions that as part-owner of the Golden State Warriors, Stevens should know better and that “Something needs to be done ASAP! A swift action for his actions.”

It has been reported that the NBA has issued out an official 1-year ban for Stevens along with a $500,000 USD fine. A statement from the NBA has gone on to emphasize that “a team representative must be held to the highest possible standard and the conduct of Golden State Warriors investor Mark Stevens last night was beyond unacceptable and has no place in our league.” Though no official response from Stevens has surfaced yet, reports are claiming that Lowry should be expecting a public apology from Stevens soon.

Stay tuned for more news on the incident and scroll below to see LeBron James Instagram post about it.

?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
