Kyrie Irving Responds To Russell Westbrook Incident, ‘I’ve Heard It All’

Russell Westbrook

"How it started was a young man and his wife in their seats told me to get down on my knees like I'm used to", he said.

"I didn't confront fans; fans confronted me", Westbrook said after the April game. He appeared to swat the phone out of a fan's hand following a loss in Game 6 of the Thunder's first round series against the Jazz last season.

The Jazz permanently banned the fan from their games, and the National Basketball Association fined Westbrook $25,000. "I'll f- you up", to a pair of Jazz fans that directed "derogatory verbal abuse" toward the Thunder star during the game.

Like all of us who've watched Morant's highlights, Will appreciated his ability to blow by an initial defender and get to the basket easily. But what happens when fans attack opposing players - both verbally and physically?

"I've gotten the N-word, all of that", Golden State Warrior Draymond Green said following an incident where a Baltimore Orioles player, Adam Jones, was called the N-word during a game in Boston in 2017.

The guard, who scored 23 points, 11 rebounds and eight assists, was filmed shouting: "I'll f**k you up, you and your wife". We also do not allow disruptive behavior, including bullying, foul or abusive language, or obscene gestures. We all try to protect the league and I think that when it comes, like, when it's an individual battle with a person in the crowd and they say something violently disrespectful like that then it's going to warrant a reaction. This has always been a hallmark of our incredible fan base and should forever be our standard moving forward.

"Jazz fans are not bigots". "Because I think at the same time if we we're out and about with our families, ain't nobody saying no sh-t like that to us".

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. We all know Russ, so somebody says something like that, he's not just going insane out of nowhere like that, so, I'm just glad he's OK. Will told me he believes Morant's explosive first step and leaping ability should allow him to continue to rack up high free throw totals in the pros, but he might not be a big time scorer initially.

"At the end of the day, he can threaten me all he wants, I was the one talking to him". She's five feet tall and 110 pounds, man.

On Tuesday, the Utah Jazz franchise banned Keisel for life from ever returning to watch a game.
