Warriors’ Mark Stevens banned 1 year, fined $500K for shoving Kyle Lowry

first_img“There’s no place for that,” Lowry told reporters Wednesday. “He had no reason to touch me. 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.”Lowry called for Stevens’ ban to be permanent when he met with reporters one day after the game.“More should be done,” Lowry said, via the Washington Post. “He’s not a good look for the ownership group they have. A guy like that showing his true class, he shouldn’t be a part of our league. There’s no place for that.”Stevens apologized for his actions in a statement later Thursday. “I take full responsibility for my actions (Wednesday) at the NBA Finals and am embarrassed by what transpired,” Stevens’ statement read, in part. “What I did was wrong and there is no excuse for it. Mr. Lowry deserves better, and I have reached out today in an attempt to directly apologize. The incident occurred early in the fourth quarter when Lowry dove into the crowd. Stevens reached over and pushed the guard before the two exchanged words. He was then ejected from the stadium.Golden State went on to lose 123-109 and now trails Toronto in the series, 2-1.

Woman Sets Boyfriend’s House Ablaze

first_imgThe burnt buildingMother-in-law dies extinguishing the flamesPolice in Gbarnga, Bong County have launched a cordon search for a woman identified as Janes Joe for allegedly setting her boyfriend’s three bedroom house on fire.According to police accounts, the incident occurred on Tuesday night September 12, in the Rubber Factory Community in Gbarnga.Police records reveal that the boyfriend’s mother, Korpo Jallah, died in the fire when she tried to extinguish it.“Korpo Jallah met her demise when she attempted to remove the generator that was supplying the house with electricity. She touched a bare wire and was electrocuted; that is how she died in the process” the Commander of the Crime Services Division of the LNP Bong County Detachment Inspector John Kelenso Flomo told this paper.Police investigations established that Ciapha Torlah, Janes Joe’s boyfriend, a local gasoline dealer, reportedly went into another community in Gbarnga to supply petroleum to some local dealers when his fiancée, Janes Joe, who claimed that he had gone to an escort (commercial sex worker), in a jealous rage, without a phone call to the boyfriend or any inquiry, set the entire house on fire.Torlah told our reporter that he lost over US$6,000 valuables apart from the house and the loss of his mother.“If only my mother would have survived from the fire, but I lost her and my house. What a wicked and ferocious behavior,” Torla said shaking his head with tears streaming down his face.Ciapha told this paper that his fiancée has persistently accused him of having outside relationships which claim he said he has repeatedly denied. I always let my girlfriend know that I am a petty gasoline dealer and I supply my friends with the product but she has never listened to me, he added.“My mother has been my backbone in terms of my business. I don’t have problems with materials lost, but my mother who died young at 49, what am I going to get from this?” Ciapha asked, breaking down in tears.He told this reporter that he and Janes Joe have lived together for a couple of years and they planned to get married but were advised to attend counseling classes in the church ahead of the wedding, although he did not say when the marriage was scheduled to take place.This latest incident has sparked mixed reactions among Gbarnga residents with many describing the woman as envious and not having the fear of God, while others are reminding the boyfriend not to venture back into the relationship.Community members, who rushed to the scene to fight the fire, could not extinguish it because of the intense flames from the generator and other flammable  items in the house.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

‘Klopp continues to transform Liverpool and we could have had him at Arsenal!’

first_imgArsenal’s 1-1 draw at Norwich meant the Gunners finished a poor month domestically with just two points in the Premier League in November.The Gunners drew with north London rivals Tottenham before they were beaten at West Brom last week and, thought they left Carrow Road with a point on Sunday, that figure could well have been zero.The Canaries clash brought other potentially bad news for Arsene Wenger, as Laurent Koscielny and Alexis Sanchez limped off with injuries. Fans were particularly infuriated to see their Chilean star pick up a problem, days after Wenger admitted the 26-year-old had the worry of a hamstring problem.Despite all the doom and gloom, the Gunners remain just two points behind leaders Manchester City and the title race appears to be relatively open, possibly providing Arsenal with a chance to end a 12-year spell without lifting the Premier League. After the Norwich draw, many fans took to Twitter to vent their frustration, while some stated their optimism. You can find some of the best reaction below…[View the story “Arsenal draw at Norwich” on Storify] 1 ‘Be patient!’ ‘Don’t renew his contract!’ – Optimism to negativity, a range of Arsenal fans’ reaction after Norwich draw last_img read more
