The video ends as Raptors veteran Kyle Lowry can be seen leading Ujiri on to the court to celebrate the team's 114-110 NBA Finals victory over the Golden State Warriors.

Ujiri didn't have the credentials on him, Kelly said, adding that the former National Basketball Association executive of the year then allegedly pushed the deputy out of the way in an effort to get on the court.

A video posted to Twitter by NBC appears to show the moments after the alleged altercation.

"Sheriff's deputy reportedly pushed and struck in the face by a man believed to be a Toronto Raptors executive after Game 6 of the #NBAFinals at Oracle Arena, @ACSOSheriffs says", Noceda tweeted Thursday night.

A spokesman for the Alameda County Sheriff's Office says the deputy asked Ujiri for his credentials as the executive tried to take the court for the trophy presentation.

Ujiri has always been an executive held in high esteem, prior to orchestrating the most successful Raptors team in franchise history, he helped lay the foundation for a formidable Denver Nuggets team. The officer tried to stop Ujiri from entering the court, as he did not have the proper credentials.

Kelly told the Chronicle no arrest was made following the incident, but the sheriff's department and Oakland police are conducting a follow-up investigation.

Ujiri was hired by the Raptors in 2013 as general manager.

As of now this case appears to be far from closed, but there should be plenty of eye-witness accounts, along with this video footage, to help the authorities get to the bottom of this. "No doubt they laid hands first, and I bet it was because they could never fathom a black man was the president of a team", wrote one responder. "But how can he not know who the opposing team's president is, especially knowing the possibility of an on court celebration of the Raptors win??"

"It's not like we were going to chase him down", Kelly said.
