Jazz owner Miller addresses fans after Westbrook encounter

15 March 2019

The fan, 45-year-old Shane Keisel, told ESPN that he did not cuss at Westbrook or say anything inappropriate.

Paul George looked like he was primed to beat up on his former team for a third straight time when his Oklahoma City Thunder went up by 19 on the Indiana Pacers after his third quarter free throw. You and your wife. Westbrook claimed that Keisel said to "get down on my knees like you're used to". In response, Keisel is filing a lawsuit against Westbrook and shut down all of his social media accounts that were found to be filled with racist and derogatory language. I swear to God. I'll f-- you up.

"I promise you. Everything I love".

Oklahoma City star Russell Westbrook said he was verbally provoked before directing a profanity-laced tirade at a fan during the Thunder's 98-89 win over the Utah Jazz on Monday in Salt Lake City. We all try to protect the league and I think that when it comes, like, when it's an individual battle with a person in the crowd and they say something violently disrespectful like that then it's going to warrant a reaction. "I'm sorry, this is just - because it happens so often, just, most of the time it doesn't get documented. And there are people that come to the game to say mean, disrespectful things about me, my family". Because I think at the same time if we were out, out and about with our families, ain't nobody saying no s-- like that to us. As for beating up his wife, I have never put my hand on a woman; I never will.

After the game was over, Westbrook told reporters he thought the fan's comments were "completely disrespectful" and "racial".

"We are continuing to investigate the unfortunate exchange at tonight's game between Russell Westbrook and fans".

"He's gotta be a professional".

"We were actually kind of having fun, he was smiling at one point".

IN continued the comeback into the fourth quarter, eventually getting within one point with 4:04 left on Darren Collison's shot at the basket.

"Russ is just F-bombing, and carrying on acting a fool down here and everybody's getting on him".

"He had ice or heat, I said "sit down and ice your knees, bro", and he said "that's heat, that's heat". Then it turned into not safe for work. I never said a swear word to him, and she never said anything or got out of her seat. "She never got up". He can threaten me all he wants.

It's clear that opposing teams' fans seem to enjoy targeting Westbrook, who's one of the NBA's most polarizing players and wears his emotions on his sleeve. But don't threaten a woman. She's five feet tall and 110 pounds, man. And while there were no statistics pointing to the racial makeup of fans who attend National Basketball Association games, the analytics-driven website FiveThirtyEight found that more than 45 percent of National Basketball Association fans were white. "Welcome to the NBA, Jen".

Monday was not the first time Keisel has called Westbrook "classless". "Utah, Phoenix, California, however - wherever you go, fans are going to be passionate about their teams, but that's just taking it too far".
