"Give away half your wealth!" Ha ha! Stevens hasn't even give 1/10 of his wealth if you check Chaarity Navigator. [Portion removed; keep it civil and stick to the topic.]

Really, I am an intense Warriors fan, but as far as I'm concerned Stevens has done such horrible damage to the good will, integrity, and common good of the Warriors, that it's fine w me if the Raptors win bc they have demonstrated such sportmanship and integrity. By allowing Stevens to invest, the Warriors have big time screwed up

This incident should never occur in professional sports. May he should be forced to sell his shares.

Stevens should be forced to sell his ownership stake and banned from attending NBA games forever.

Kyle Lowry has my respect and support for the way he handled the matter.

I saw the video. It seemed to me Mark Stevens assumed the player was too aggressive crashing into the seats and reacted inappropriately. The fine and punishment assessed seem like a very strong sanction for making the mistake. I have to say that there seems like a very healthy dose of class warfare going on, and because Stevens is a billionaire, people want him to be pilloried even more. He made a mistake, and is paying what seems like a very high price. It's enough.
