Russell Westbrook and fans get into verbal altercation during Jazz game

He could be clearly heard saying, "I'll f-- you up" to the fan and the woman the man was with near the Thunder's bench. "That's heat.' I'm like, 'Well you're gonna need it" and then it turned not safe for work". "I truly will stand up for myself and my family and my wife and my mom and my dad every single time, I expect anybody else to do the same", Westbrook said.

He later defended his actions, saying he had been subjected to "disrespectful" and "racial" language.

"Keisel said there were no racial remarks made from him or anyone around him". Westbrook was fined for using both profanity and threatening language, which he did from the sideline.

Russell Westbrook confronted a male fan and his wife Monday night during the Oklahoma City Thunder's win at Utah, telling the man he would "f--" him up and do the same to his wife.

"The Utah Jazz previously announced that the individual involved in the incident with Westbrook has been permanently banned from Vivint Smart Home Arena".

A cavalcade of National Basketball Association personnel supported Westbrook in the aftermath of the incident, with both OKC and Utah players supporting the Thunder star's version of events.


But it didn't take long for internet sleuths to find what they said were racist posts written by Keisel on his Twitter account, complicating the incident.

According to multiple reports, some of Westbrook's comments were caught on video by another fan. "And there are people that come to the game to say mean, disrespectful things about me, my family". If I was on the street, they wouldn't just come up to me and say anything insane, because I don't play that s--. There's got to be some consequences for those type of people that come to the game just to say and do whatever they want to say. "In light of recent events between Russell Westbrook & a few outlying Jazz fans, I am calling for the true, loyal, welcoming and kind Utah Jazz fans to show our true colors".

Oklahoma City Thunder guard Russell Westbrook gave a mouthful to Utah Jazz fans. "I never said a swear word to him, and everybody in the vicinity will say it", Keisel, told KSL Sports anchor Jeremiah Jensen.

Utah players Donovan Mitchell and Thabo Sefolosha also issued statements in support of Westbrook. "I'm exhausted of just going out and playing, then the fans saying whatever the hell they want to say".

"Because if I was on the street, they wouldn't just come up to me and say anything insane, because I don't play that s-t".

Following the exchange with the fan a year ago, Westbrook opened up on the "disrespectful" fan-base in Utah.
