Jazz owner Miller addresses fans after Westbrook encounter

The fan who heckled Westbrook on Monday was permanently banned by the Jazz from all events at Vivint Smart Home Arena.

Utah Jazz fans want to show their true colors after what happened between a fan and Oklahoma City Thunder player Russell Westbrook.

The Utah Jazz have taken swift action against the fan who got into a verbal altercation with Oklahoma City Thunder star point guard Russell Westbrook on Monday evening. Second thing that needs to be done is getting fans who act like this at games, even if is not racially charge, banned for life, which is exactly what happened to Shane Keisel. Westbrook responded by saying "I'll f*%! you up" in a video captured courtside moments after the incident. "As for beating up his wife, I've never put my hand on a woman, I never will".

"I swear to god, I'll f-- you up".

"I said "yeah, well you'll need it", and then it turned into not safe for work".

Another email to season-ticket holders said the team can revoke those tickets regardless of who is sitting in those seats for a particular game. The eight-time All-Star told reporters after the Thunder's 98-89 win that the fan told him "to get down on my knees like you used to".

Fans collectively impact a franchise's bottom line, but not almost at the level that a player does.

The Thunder drop to 42-27 on the season, and fall a half game behind the Houston Rockets for third place in the Western Conference standings, and in a virtual tie with Portland for fourth place.

Russell Westbrook's heated verbal confrontation at a game in Utah was just the latest example in what appeared to be a growing trend of racist taunts from the National Basketball Association fans. Keisel maintains he did not say the racially charged statement, instead insisting he said "ice your knees". Keisel, though, says Westbrook misunderstood what Keisel yelled.

"And we all try to protect the league and I think that when it's an individual battle with a person in the crowd and they say something violently disrespectful like that, then it's gonna warrant a reaction", he continued. "I'd rather not get into [where]".

However, the White House has stated that if the resolution were to land on US President Donald Trump's desk, he would veto it. This decisive vote will end "the American facilitation of the Yemen war and the world's largest humanitarian crises".

"To say mean and disrespectful things about me, my family, I've never done anything to hurt or harm anybody". I think it's just inappropriate in the sense of, there's no protection for the players.

"For many years I've done all the right things".

"He just went nuts", Keisel told ESPN. "That's one of the big reasons why I chose to come here", Matthews said. I'm not afraid of the guy.

The confrontation between Westbrook and the Jazz fans was caught on video and posted to social media.
