NBA: Russell Westbrook unleashes profanity-laden tirade at fan after being provoked
The Utah Jazz have reportedly banned another fan for life from Vivint Smart Home Arena. Five other Jazz fans received "warning cards" during Monday night's game because their actions were in direct violation of the NBA's Fan Code of Conduct.
According to Eric Woodyard of the Deseret News, this second fan, whose name wasn't mentioned, had called Westbrook "boy" several times when the Thunder and Jazz met in the first round of the 2018 playoffs on April. 23.
This is not the first time Westbrook has had a run in with a Utah Jazz fan.
If you're a regular reader of our draft big board feature, you know I'm super high on Morant's pro potential. In the speech, Miller explained that the team has a zero tolerances policy when it comes to racism. The fan would be banned, and plans to sue Westbrook in retaliation. Westbrook told reporters the fan said "get down on your knees like you're used to", which Westbrook considered to be a racially inspired comment. He was fresh off his first triple-double as a Celtic in a big comeback win, but in this moment, he was mired in the endless frustration that comes as a outcome of being a professional athlete.
Miller, who has owned the Jazz for 34 years with her late husband Larry, implored the crowd to do better and said, "We are not a racist community" before a 120-100 win against Minnesota. I was the one talking to him, but don't threaten a woman. At another, they serenaded George with "We don't miss you".
Now, let us be clear: we want you to be loud. TMZ Sports obtained video last week of New York Knicks owner James Dolan at Madison Square Garde n when he heard a fan that he was walking past yell "Sell the team". His speed in the open court reminds me of De'Aaron Fox, who's enjoying a breakout 2nd National Basketball Association season in Sacramento. "So this guy needs to be exposed".
Westbrook was pulled up by the match officials for his altercation with the fans and he addressed the situation after the game and revealed that the exchange got heated due to a racial comment made by one of the home supporters.
"He had ice or heat, I said "sit down and ice your knees, bro", and he said "that's heat, that's heat". The Jazz eliminated the Thunder from last season's playoffs, and as Westbrook walked off the floor immediately after that loss, he swiped at a fan who was taping him with his phone. "It's truly disrespectful to the game, man". The eight-time All-Star got in a pair of verbal altercations with Jazz fans in the series-clinching Game 6 loss past year when he swiped at a fan who was filming him leaving the court and yelled at another fan who confronted him at the tunnel.
This leads to the question of how can organizations provide their fans with a great game experience, but also protect the players from unruly spectators?
