During last night’s Jazz-Thunder game, Russell Westbrook was caught on video getting into it with a Jazz fan.

In the video, Westbrook could be heard saying that he was going to fuck up the fan and his wife.

Westbrook claims that the fan told him to “get down on your knees like you’re used to” which he says he found “completely disrespectful”.

The fan involved in the altercation, Shane Keisel, spoke to a local Utah TV station about the incident and claims he did nothing wrong.

The Utah Jazz investigated the matter and have issued a lifetime ban to the fan for committing “excessive and derogatory verbal abuse’ in altercation with Westbrook

It is worth noting that Keisel has history of berating Westbrook on Twitter.

Update: Westbrook has been fined $25k for his involvement and Kiesel is now pursuing a lawsuit against the NBA star.
