Utah Jazz bans fan involved in confrontation with Russell Westbrook
15 March, 2019, 05:28 | Author: Nicole Aguilar
"The Utah that I have come to love is welcoming and inclusive and last night's incident is not indicative of our fanbase".
"I promise you", Westbrook continues. "That's kind of how that started". Utah investigated the exchange between Westbrook and one spectator in particular, and it decided the fan would not be welcome back at the arena in the future. I swear to god, I swear to god.
While the fan has been punished by the organization, Westbrook didn't exactly get off scott-free. To me, I think it's racial, and I think it's inappropriate in the sense that there's no protection for the players.
Tonight wasn't the first timeRussell Westbrook has had a heated exchange with fans in Utah.
The altercation was between Jazz fanShane Keisel and Oklahoma City Thunder point guard Russell Westbrook. "I promise you. On everything I love".
"Fans confront me. Here in Utah, man, a lot of disrespectful, vulgar things are said to the players here".
Westbrook further said in his postgame comments that he never has and never would get physically violent with a woman, but that he was so offended, he would take the same actions and say the same thing if he had it to do over again.
Keisel told his side of the story to KSL-TV's Jeremiah Jensen on Monday night.
Keisel continued, "I just told him, 'Sit down and ice your knees, bro, ' and he turned to me and was like, 'It's heat, it's heat, ' and I'm like, 'Well you're gonna need it, ' and it turned into not-safe-for-work". "There could have been some words that Russ could have said a little bit differently, but at the end of the day, he was in the right and that guy was in the wrong". Come on up. But when you threaten a woman that's five feet tall and 110 pounds, you're a big man.
"In my six years playing for the Jazz and in Salt Lake City, I never heard any racist comment towards me or anyone".
While Vivint Smart Home Arena security handed out warning cards to numerous fans at Monday's game who violated the league's code of conduct, it did not eject Keisel or his wife. The NBA's Fan Code of Conduct states that "players will respect and appreciated each and every fan", and where guests "will enjoy the basketball experience free from disruptive behavior, including foul or abusive language or obscene gestures". "People can say whatever what they want to say us during games and yell out stuff and talk about our families and talk about our kids".
