I am a firm believer, if fans can say what they want, so can players. Russell Westbrook found himself in another verbal altercation with Utah Jazz fans during tonights game. Westbrook was recorded telling the fan "I'll fu*k you up, you and your wife. Say something to me again."
It's not clear what the fans said to Westbrook to warrant that reaction. The fan claims he didn't say anything disrespectful. Check out his account below.
Unfortunately for this fan, Thunder player Patrick Patterson heard every word that was said and claims the fan said WAYYYY more.
Fans can say shit about a mans family, wife, & kids.. Tell a player “Get down on your knees like your use to.” As men, what do you expect us to do? Shut up & dribble? No one is held accountable for their actions except for us. Fans are protected in every way possible but not us.
Westbrook has a long history with disrespectful Utah Jazz fans. Last year, video went viral after Westbrook was seen batting away a fans hand.
Hopefully, this new incident will encourage the NBA to require arena staff to intervene before players have too. Check out Russell's reaction to the incident below.
