NBA Passes Zero-Tolerance Policy for Abusive Fan Behavior

NBA Passes Zero-Tolerance Policy for Abusive Fan Behavior .

The NBA is changing its code of conduct for the 2019-2020 season.

.

We've added any sexist language or LGBTQ language, any denigrating language in that way, anything that is non-basketball-related.

, Jerome Pickett, NBA executive vice president, via statement.

So 'your mother' comments, talking about your family ... anything non-basketball-related ... we will go and pull a fan out of the seat and investigate what happened.

, Jerome Pickett, via statement.

The new policy is in reaction to a number of high-profile altercations between players and fans last season.

.

Russell Westbrook and DeMarcus Cousins were the subjects of racial taunts in Salt Lake City and Boston.

.

Kyle Lowry was shoved by Mark Stevens, a minority partner of the Golden State Warriors' ownership group.

.

Stevens was banned from conducting any team business for one year by the NBA
