Russell Westbrook and Jazz Fan Share Thoughts After Verbal Altercation

Westbrook was caught on video standing near his team's bench and directing an expletive-laden tirade at a fan off camera. "I'll f-- you up.I promise you, everything I love", yelled Westbrook at the fan.

"I'll take it. Every night", Mitchell said. "I'll f-k you up". "You and your wife", he says.

Russell Westbrook isn't apologizing for verbally threatening to "f- up" a male and female fan who were heckling him during a game in Utah on Monday night.

Utah fan Keisel denied the claims, saying that what has been a good-natured exchange had turned nasty when Westbrook snapped.

It was not clear what was said to Westbrook to provoke the response, but he appeared to say "I will f*** you up. you and your wife" to the fan.

"To me, that's just completely disrespectful". To me, I think it's racial and inappropriate.

"If I had it to do over again, I would say the exact same thing". For me, I'm just not going to take the disrespect for my family. "I never said a swear word to him, and everybody in the vicinity will say it", Keisel, told KSL Sports anchor Jeremiah Jensen. When is it gonna be a point where there's gonna be protecting of us players?

Russell Westbrook got into a heated verbal altercation with fans. "But when you're in the heat of the moment in a game or you blocked out from playing and somebody blurts out something disrespectful to you, sometimes you respond", he said.

For Westbrook, this was not his first run-in with fans in Salt Lake City.

"Throughout the whole game, since I've been here, especially here in Utah, there's a lot of disrespectful things that's said", Westbrook told reporters after the game. On the flip side, the fan in question said that he thought the exchange was all in fun between an opposing player and fan.

"Initially, I was like, 'I'm talking with Westbrook". So as soon as Russ goes off, now all of a sudden, all the security and everybody want to come and say something. Never been in any domestic violence before. I know him personally, he's like a brother, and he's not that type of guy. Another teammate, Raymond Felton, also backed Westbrook's account.

Utah Jazz center Rudy Gobert (27) is fouled by Oklahoma City Thunder forward Jerami Grant (9) while dunking the basketball during the first quarter at Vivint Smart Home Arena. "But when you threaten a woman that's 5 feet tall and 110 pounds, you're a big man". Check out the "warning card", as well as some of Keisel's old tweets, below. "If it is determined that any fans violated the NBA Code of Conduct, appropriate action will be taken".
