I remember seeing this last night and thinking what a total douchebag that fan was. Turns out, he's a co-owner.

Please refrain from using the term "owner". It's racially insensitive.

Hahaha!!!! No shit. Even the shove itself said, "Ewwwww. Get off of me you sweaty person."

I'm sure he said more inside.

People still watch the NBA? I loved it in the 80s and 90s until it turned into a no defense 3 point shooting contest.

But, I agree the guy is a dbag and it would of been cool to at least see him get slapped upside the head once.

What power does the NBA have to fine the guy? If I were him I'd tell them to go F themselves. I might even sue the NBA for the hell of it if I were he. I'm sure he has lawyers on retainer.

Its probably much better for him to take the punishment-business-wise, than protest and get some negative publicity.

The NBA could make him sell his shares in the organization. They can do anything they want. That douchebag was fined a measly 500K and banned for something like a year.

They are omnipotent in their business arrangement just like the NFL. Don't fool yourself.

Definitely not. One can draw parallels to the nerds that pop off on the forums. The perception of safety encourages people to behave in ways they otherwise would not if the safety net were not in place.

Agreed, but why would he still want to be involved with the NBA after this? I'd liquidate my ownership without paying the NBA anything; then let them try and collect their $500k.

I guess it's clear I don't think the guy did anything that offensive.

Because the franchise value is worth north of $3.5 billion and rapidly increasing with their new found success. Whatever his investment is in the team itís likely the best return heís ever made. That guy was probably praying the NBA didnít force him to divest his interest in the team.

Folks are entitled to their opinion on this and thatís fine. Bottom line: you shouldnít be putting your hands on people. What a cowardly act. Putting your hands on someone that cannot rightfully defend themselves.

He couldn't rightfully defend himself? Really? Against whom? The guy is a large athlete in great shape. This isn't an 80 year old person with arthritis and a bad back!

You clearly donít get it. It goes like this...Kyle Lowry gets shoved by Mark Stevens, Kyle Lowry punches Mark Stevens in the face, Kyle Lowryís career is effectively over. Since this seems to be going over your head, the following would ensue: All of his endorsements would end before the final seconds ticked off the clock, the NBA would suspend him indefinitely and then ban him, the Raptors would release him and Mark Stevens would likely sue him. Make sense?

I guess I can envision defending oneself going beyond a physical altercation. Can you?

People are acting like the guy did something really horrible. He pushed him away. He should have kept his hands to himself; yes, but he didn't throw a milkshake on him!

This is SO overblown. I would have nothing to do with the NBA if I were considering investing in a team.

Can we all agree that it would be absurd for the NBA to issue a fine if the court side pusher wasn't an investor in a team? I say this because it isn't clear that the fine derives itself from the guy being an investor. Would anyone support a $500k fine to just some person who happed to be sitting court side?

Personally I am just super offended by this action by the NBA. Where does someone go to dispute the fine? Whom is the neutral arbiter in these cases? I'd make the NBA settle this in court. No way in hell I'd give them $500 never mind $500k.

Edit: I wonder if the right move is for the guy to just shut up and let them talk about the fine.... Then just never pay it. I'd bet the NBA wouldn't ever actually take legal action to demand payment. They just need a story in the press displaying that they're taking the guy to the wood shed.

lettuce to cabbages
The interwebz KB warriors are hidden and not physically present
for example, Donkey green is the quintessential fake tough guy
He bumps his chests and flexes and shoves, but when it comes time to throw down, he aint doin' shit

The real dudes in the NBA you don't mess with wont say things till they need to throw some lefts & rights

If the NBA would stop treating its athletes like they're on a leash and not allowed to react to things like humans would, i think a lot of this stuff would sort itself out.

What would happen in, say, a rec league game with no cameras? Guy on the bleachers randomly shoves a player, player would probably shove right back, possibly putting the smaller guy on his ass.

At that point it's probably done unless the other dude wants to escalate by throwing punches or saying something really nasty. But he won't, because the other guy would cave his face in.

I think that environment is pretty self-policing, no? On the playgrounds we would break up fights but we'd let guys go at it for awhile first. You wanna talk shit or put your hands on someone, you gotta be prepared to back it up yourself
