Gail Miller Addresses Jazz Fans, Says 'We Are Not A Racist Community'

Kyrie Irving has perfect response for Russell Westbrook's incident with Jazz fan

After the game, Westbrook gave his explanation: "How it started was, a young man and his wife in the stands told me 'to get down on my knees like you used to.' To me, that's just completely disrespectful, to me, I think it's racial, and I think it's inappropriate and insensitive". A video of the incident show Westbrook repeatedly saying, "I'll f*ck you up!"

"I don't mind the fan interaction but not when I'm at work and you're trying to get me to go... let me come in your office and yell in your ear like that". I swear to God. "You and your wife!"

Westbrook was ultimately fined $25,000 by the league the following day "for directing profanity and threatening language toward a fan".

The latest altercation between Oklahoma City Thunder guard Russell Westbrook and Shane Keisel, a fan of the Utah Jazz, has shown that National Basketball Association and the NBPA must come together and figure out how to really address fan confrontations.

Even though Utah is known as a tough environment to play in due to the behavior displayed by its fans, don't think that this is just a Jazz problem.

Keisel soon deleted his Twitter account and is preparing to sue Westbrook, but we're thinking his social media account may not help his case. "We are not a racist community", Miller told the crowd Thursday ahead of the team's win over the Timberwolves. At the Utah game Monday night, some fans were issued warning cards but allowed to return to their seats.

We do not permit hate speech, racism, sexism or homophobia. Violators may be subject to ejection and other penalties, including a lifetime ban. You can also use the arena text line (801-901-8111) and an arena representative will respond to address the matter. "That's what you want". IN now sits third in the East at 44-25 but is only up two games on the No. 5 seed Boston Celtics, and home court advantage will be key to any first-round series. "If we were out and about with our families, ain't nobody saying no s*** like that to us". From time to time, individual fans exhibit poor behavior and forget their manners and disrespect players on other teams.

Android Q’s new camera features will make shutterbugs happy
Similar to iOS, now Android users have the ability to prevent apps from using the location while running in the background. Something to look forward to: Google has finally released the Android Q beta with a big focus on privacy .

That story clearly didn't add up as Utah announced on Tuesday that Keisel is permanently banned from attending future events at the Vivint Smart Home Arena.

Per Woodyard, the team conducted an investigation to track down the fan from the previously leaked video. At another, they serenaded George with "We don't miss you".

"The Utah Jazz will not tolerate fans who act inappropriately. It's just a respect thing of the game and people's professions".

Keisel, a former Utah Highway Patrol employee, maintains he did nothing wrong.

It wasn't Westbrook's first time being involved in an altercation in Utah.

Westbrook then turns his attention to the people at the receiving end of his ire.
