Stewart opened up for the first time since the incident and stated that he didn’t feel like it was an accident from James’ side. The latter appeared to try to apologize after the contact and Stewart attempted to rush to his side multiple times, with players and security intervening.
“This is going to be my last time addressing it. I watched the film. I didn’t feel like it was an accident. My focus is on my team and playing basketball. I won’t let that define who I am. What Detroit drafted me for is what will define who I am”, told Stewart, per The Athletic’s James Edwards III.
In the aftermath of the altercation, James was suspended for one game for the first time in his NBA career, and Steward also received a two-game suspension by the league.
