part of me is worried GSW will dress everyone once its do or die and just win 3 street
you remember the malice at the palace? Something like that could EASILY trigger another event like that.
As much as I love Kadri, part of me wonders how he would have reacted in Lowry's shoes.
Super classy by the Warriors. Very impressed with the response.
The ruckus that popped off that night was because an idiot fan tossed a drink on Artest. Artest was born and raised in the Queen's bridge projects, he may have left them but the the projects never left him. Go take a look at the sheer number of rappers that grew up in those same projects as Artest. As an extreme example, it would have been like going and punching Mike Tyson and expecting him not to do anything because he's a professional.
Lowry was the bigger man last night in that situation, bigger than I would have been.
It’s such a weird situation. Almost feels like a must win for both teams.
For GS going down 3-1 is crazy hard to come back from, even if KD comes back.
For the Raps, if you let it become a best of 3 with KD seeming like he’ll be back anytime, you gotta figure you’re heavy underdogs.
Not excusing what the owner did but doesn't mean he should be banned for life. That being said I didn't hear the profanites he yelled at Lowry after shoving him. Lowry said they were really bad.
So that 500K counts as team revenue right?
Which means he would get part of it back as an investor in the team?
Lowry confirmed that he said "go f*** yourself" multiple times. Probably not the type of thing the league wants associated with an owner, even a minority owner.
He's held to a different standard. He represents the team and the league as an owner.
We'll see what the Warriors do after this. They should cut ties.
Can you imagine if Lowry did that to him?!
Nothing more than an old fat drunken rich entitled thug who can't control himself.
What an embarrassment for Oakland. And people complain about our idiot Drake. At least he doesn't shove players.
With all this news about Drake and Mark Stevens a true fan is someone like Nav who just cheers for his team. Honestly, Nav's story is one of the greatest I've ever seen, coming from India and then going into the car business and working his way up in a few months to running the dealership. He made himself a multi millionaire and then used that millions to engage in multiple charitable acts as well as support his team. That guy is just as friendly and classy as can be. Someone sent him a slew of racist tweets (Milwaukee fan) and he was able to forgive him and take him out to dinner.
Has what Mark Stevens said to Lowry been released anywhere?
All fanbases have their idiots...
Arrest made after vulgar comment directed at Curry, wife of NBA star
Sure its easy to do
I mean we had an NBA player attack and strangle his HC and receive a slap on wrist
Lowry confirmed in an interview yesterday. “Go **** yourself!”
The outrage comes from the fact that this man never would have put his hands on Kyle Lowry if he didn’t have a security blanket. He felt safe. He shouldn’t.
Add in that he’s a billionaire owner who makes money off athletes like Kyle Lowry, and that he should have been well aware of the situation when a player is trying to save a loose ball like that.... I just don’t think the punishment is harsh enough.
You left out the best part! He lectured him on the importance of setting a better example for his son and not creating a hateful environment for future generations... then takes him to dinner and sends his son a bunch of Bucks gear!
Well played, Nav!
Stevens should've gotten out in front of it, called Lowry or spoken to him in person to apologize, and offer to donate $100,000 to a charity of his choice
Lowry then could've made a public statement that Stevens apologized and made things right, and that would've been the end of it
Anyone know why Max Kellerman keeps wearing shades on the show now?
Nah, he can’t sit courtside anymore. It’s a privilege that he lost IMO.
What if Lowry slapped him (like he should have) and got suspended?
Billionaire owner should know better and there shouldn’t be any second chances.
Yeah, he still likely gets banned for the rest of the series, but I doubt he would've been fined half a million and suspended for a year
He has "Superfan" in his username, so he's definitely playing up the self-interest/self-promotion angle too
Its tough because this one is kind of without precedent.
I guess the entitled billionaire owner disrespecting and assaulting one of the athletes that help make his investment profitable really rubs some people the wrong way.
West Coast Max
He did this in Vegas too before GGG Canelo
I like it it looks slick
He has always seemed like a pretty genuine guy. I think youre a bit to pessimistic
