National Basketball Association issue lifetime ban to fan after abuse claims

"Especially in Utah, when I come here, a lot of disrespectful things are said". We all have a responsibility to respect the game of basketball and, more importantly, each other as human beings. "The Utah that I have come to love is welcoming and inclusive and last night's incident is not indicative of our fanbase".

Fans, I understand they pay hard-earned money to watch our handsome game, to watch our lovely players, and I respect that. "So that's kind of how that started", Westbrook explained. Before people knew what the fan, Shane Keisel, had said-and before they knew who Keisel was-the sports world had a collective conniption fit as Russell Westbrook was caught on video cursing him out.

Shane Keisel spoke to TV station Salt Lake City NBC 5 from courtside, saying: "I never said a single swear word to him, not one".

In a video that's circulating on social media, the Jordan Brand-backed athlete addressed a fan that he told reporters after the game was making racial and inappropriate comments.

Westbrook was on the bench and stood when he heard what the fans said. I think it's just inappropriate in the sense of, there's no protection for the players.

He says he heard Keisel tell him to "get down on your knees like you're used to".

Keisel denied insulting Westbrook, claiming that they had merely engaged in a good-natured back-and-forth before the player snapped.

A viral video shows Westbrook threatening to "f*** up" a male fan and his wife during the Thunder-Jazz game.

The NBA has launched an investigation into an "unfortunate exchange" between Oklahoma City Thunder's Russell Westbrook and a fan. "I promise you. On everything I love".

"For many years, I've done all the right things, I've never done anything to hurt or harm anybody", Westbrook said. "I'll f-- him up", Westbrook tells somebody standing off camera.

"He just went nuts", Keisel told ESPN.

"I mean, it's all fine, we're having fun and games with the guy and we're talking, but at the end of the day, no man should threaten a woman, period", the fan said, later adding, "I'm not afraid of the guy".

"The ban is effective immediately and includes all arena events", a prepared statement said. "You think I'm playing". It appears that there are multiple security agents standing nearby. "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".

The NBA's worst incident between players and fans took place during a 2004 brawl between Indiana Pacers players and Detroit Piston spectators which resulted in nine players being suspended.
