NBA: Russell Westbrook unleashes profanity-laden tirade at fan after being provoked

Utah Jazz Ban Fan Who Had Heated, Racist Exchange With Russell Westbrook

The Utah Jazz have banned another fan for life after Shane Keisel was permanently prohibited from attending any future games in the wake of his belligerent behavior against Oklahoma City Thunder guard Russell Westbrook.

Rajon Rondo scored 13 points but the Lakers failed to win back-to-back games for the first time since January 15 and 17, when they beat Chicago and won at Oklahoma City. "If not, enjoy your night".

In the 2018 incident, a fan can be heard calling Westbrook "boy" before Game 4 of the Thunder's first-round playoff matchup with the Jazz. Some disrespect players on other team. "If anything, it brings light to something the league, along with players - everybody can try to make it better".

NBA Twitter discovered Keisel's Twitter account which had previously disparaged Westbrook and has made other racist statements in the past.

"The realization of it is - how it started was - a young man and his wife in the stands told me to 'get down on my knees like you used to, ' Westbrook said".

Ahead of the match-up between the Jazz and the Timberwolves at Vivint Smart Home Arena, Miller took the mic to tell those in attendance that she abhors the incident between the player and a Jazz fan, TMZ reported. "I'll f- you up".

NBA Superstar Russell Westbrook vs Jazz fans is nothing new. He said fans are not "held accountable for their actions".

"It happens so often and most of the time doesn't get documented", Irving said.

After the game, the 30-year-old National Basketball Association star was questioned about the exchange and told reporters that the fan told him to "get down on my knees like I used to", which he felt was "completely disrespectful" and a "racial attack" on him and his family. Keisel maintains he did not say the racially charged statement, instead insisting he said "ice your knees". I don't really mind the fan interaction, but not while I'm at work ... let me come to our office and yell in your ear like that. To protect the NBA's image, players aren't supposed to fight back. He said he was responding to a racial taunt, and not for the first time in Salt Lake City.

"He can threaten me all he wants".

Deaton said he and his family have held season tickets to Jazz games since he was five years old, and that he's never "personally experienced racism or bigotry" like what was shown on Monday night.

Former NBA star Matt Barnesadmitted in December that he had experienced racist fans during his 14-year-career and described Utah as being very racial and as having more "N-words than black people in the city". The fan would be banned, and plans to sue Westbrook in retaliation.
