"I was also disappointed that the people around the fan didn't speak up in the moment", Starks said.

George and the Thunder were in control most of the game.

Keisel said he was playfully bantering with Westbrook before Westbrook started cursing at him. "To me that's just completely disrespectful".

Westbrook spoke to the media after the game and defended his actions. But Westbrook, who has had multiple angry in-game exchanges with fans, insisted that Monday night's video during a 98-89 Oklahoma City win over the Jazz told only one side of the story.

Westbrook and his teammates said the man KSL identified as Shane Keisel told Westbrook, "Get down on your knees like you're used to".

It was later revealed that Keisel was a member of the MAGA movement after a series of his now-deleted tweets that said in part, "Russell Westbrook needs to go back where he came from #MAGA". "I swear to god".

"I promise you", Westbrook continues. After the game the Jazz put out a statement stating they had banned Keisel. To me, I think it's racial, and I think it's inappropriate in the sense that there's no protection for the players.

But a moment like this proves that the National Basketball Association has a bigger problem on its hands, and as one of the most socially active leagues in all of professional sports, this might be one issue in which the usually proactive National Basketball Association can't find an adequate solution for. "The Utah that I have come to love is welcoming and inclusive, and last night's incident is not indicative of our fan base". The fan would be banned, and plans to sue Westbrook in retaliation. She's five feet tall and 110lbs, man. Mitchell noted the incident was "not the first time something like that has happened in [their] arena".
