Jazz Fan Permanently Banned After Altercation With Russell Westbrook

Russell Westbrook gets into a heated verbal altercation with fans in the first half of the Oklahoma City Thunder's game against the Utah Jazz on Monday

She's five feet tall and 110 pounds, man. "I never said a swear word to him, and everybody in the vicinity will say it", Keisel, told KSL Sports anchor Jeremiah Jensen.

Westbrook then responded with the expletives, Keisel said.

The NBA, meanwhile, fined Westbrook $25,000 "for directing profanity and threatening language to a fan".

"There are people that come to the games to say mean disrespectful things about me and my family".

It's unclear if Keisel's history of attacks against Westbrook played a role in the Jazz's decision to issue the permanent ban.

Westbrook said the heckler told him to "get down on your knees like you're used to", a comment he found racial and inappropriate.

Following last night's incident, Mitchell tweeted he was "personally hurt by the incident".

The altercation was between Jazz fan Shane Keisel and Oklahoma City Thunder point guard Russell Westbrook. Now he has his proof.

It involved more than 2,000 witnesses, with an estimated 125,000 pages of evidential material considered. Kevin Mc Kinney's father Gerard was one of the men killed on the day by the soldier who is now deceased.

The Utah Jazz fan Shane Keisel, who caused Oklahoma City Thunder's Russell Westbrook to get out of character and threaten to throw blows, got hit with a lifetime ban from Vivint Smart Arena.

In an interview after the game he told reporters that what at first seemed like a good natured exchange took an ominous turn when he told Westbrook, to quote, "Sit down and ice your knees, bro".

He proceeded to say that "throughout the whole game, throughout since I've been here, especially in Utah, every time I come here there's a lot of disrespectful things that's said".

Internet sleuths promptly got to work and uncovered what appeared to be a series of racist tweets posted to Keisel's Twitter account that were later deleted.

When one unidentified fan yelled at Westbrook, "Here we go, boy", the Thunder guard confronted the fan. At least one had the #MAGA hashtag. He added that singled out Utah fans for saying "disrespectful, vulgar things".

Jazz forward Thabo Sefolosha previously teamed with Russell Westbrook for six seasons in OKC from 2008-14, where they experienced everything from an NBA Finals appearance in 2012 to a pair of Western Conference finals runs in 2011 and 2014. "I think it's racial". That's the difference for me. "I promise you", Westbrook was heard saying while on the bench in the video.

"'That was something new". On the flip side, the fan in question said that he thought the exchange was all in fun between an opposing player and fan. 'We weren't expecting that. I wanted to get all of the information before I even commented on it.

The racism among National Basketball Association fans wasn't only restricted to Utah, either. No one is held accountable for their actions except for us.
