The Utah Jazz announced a lifetime ban of Shane Keisel, the Utah fan who made derogatory statements to Russell Westbrook during the Oklahoma City Thunder's 98-89 win over the Jazz at Vivint Arena on Monday night.

"The Utah Jazz will not tolerate fans who act inappropriately. There is no place in our game for personal attacks or disrespect," the team said via a press release on Tuesday. "The ban is based on excessive and derogatory verbal abuse directed at a player during the game that violated the NBA Code of Conduct."

Team president Steve Starks said, "Everyone deserves the opportunity to enjoy and play the game in a safe, positive and inclusive environment. We all have a responsibility to respect the game of basketball and, more importantly, each other as human beings."

The incident occurred during the first half of the NBA game in Salt Lake City.

"I swear to God, I'll f*ck you up. You and your wife. I'll f*ck you up," Westbrook told Keisel in a video tweeted by Jazz digital sports reporter Eric Woodyard.

Westbrook said Keisel told him to "get down on my knees like you used to" - a statement which he considered racist. Westbrook also complained about the lack of security for the players.

"As for beating up his wife, I've never put my hand on a woman. I never will,” Westbrook told reporters after the game. "Once he said the comment, his wife repeated the same thing to me. That's kinda how that started."

The NBA fined Westbrook $25,000 "for directing profanity and threatening language to a fan."

Keisel told KSL5-TV that he said Westbrook should "Just sit down and ice your knees." Keisel said he was not racist or disrespectful toward Westbrook.

But Twitter users uncovered old tweets that shows Keisel's racist attitude toward the star guard.

According to Heavy.com, Keisel is a former Utah Highway Patrolman and a Toyota car salesman.

    What does a lifetime ban mean? Do they hang your picture up at the door? 20 years from now..how will they know it's you?

  • Li-Wright

    Good! But you know it's going to get worse with fans with Sports betting is made legal. Those good old boys are going to bet on sports like they do at slot machines. They can kick the slot machines when they lose, but they'll KILL a N*GR if they lose the sports bet.

    That Toyota car salesman will be former too.

  • justlooking

    I swear to God, I'll f*ck you up. You and your wife. I'll f*ck you up," Westbrook told Keisel

    Additionally he said I promise you on everything I love.

    You about to loose it all! Your mind and job. Glad it didn't come to that.

    Security at nba games is unbelievable tight. The cameras can single you out in the entire arena.

    *Clappin* yessss....eye am so sick of some entitled white folks,who think they and say and do anything without consequences. I am so glad The Utah Jazz stated that they "will not tolerate fans who act inappropriately". I hope the NBA continue to stand behind all players in the league.

  • VernadineTheQueen?

    Good. We don’t Russ beating nobody,?? even though this POS deserves it. He been talking stuff on twitter about Russ for awhile. ??

  • Ghost

    Scary that he is a former Utah highway patrolman...I wonder how many people of color he harassed and jacked up? At least one of them are OFF the road!

  • Ghost

    Yes...face recognition!

  • Yup, I said it

    GOOD!

  • Renee Bee

    Russell said both of you can get it.
    The NBA fined him $25,000.
    So I figure both the fan and wife should be banned. Its simple math.

    I applaud his ass getting banned. This reminds me of that black baseball player, I forget what team he played for but his team was playing against my home team and some racists were yelling derogatory comments and throwing peanuts at him. I felt so bad for the guy. They have so much privilege that they're blinded by it at times. They're the ones that hold season passes to these games some people ain't that fortunate.

    Racists don't care being banned. He's now famous among his circle, and believe me he is a hero for the cause in their blogs.

    People on the blog sometimes talk in slang or Ebonics just for fun. They’ve been knowing each other a long time, it’s cute IMO. No need to be rude about it.

  • Malificent

    These racist are getting bold with their sh-t!

  • Malificent
  • Malificent

    That’s exactly what I thought. The courts should analyze all of his arrests and tickets and see if there could possibly be profiling.

  • Oretta Grace Smith

    Russell reminded him and his wife, We are not the same Blacks!!!

  • Malificent

    Now is the time for the NBA and all black people to stand behind each other and not tolerate any racism. We can’t keep giving these white people a pass. They’re going to keep doing it so now they need to go back into hiding their hate.

  • Malificent

    He provoked him on purpose

  • Oretta Grace Smith

    If they find one black or half black, he/she will become the face for this crime.

  • KcoolMuziq
  • Oretta Grace Smith

    Very scary!!! That's why he was so comfortable, Sicko and his wife too. She said the same thing to Rus.

  • Peace

    He’ll be back clean shaved with a bald head and glasses, under a fake name in a VIP box to keep a low profile

  • Oretta Grace Smith

    A lifetime banned hero, iiiiihaaaa!!

  • Oretta Grace Smith

    And those white trash people Can't give him a dime. Mad because Russell got more than them!!!

  • Oretta Grace Smith

    He was A Pig then!!! That's why he was so comfortable saying that. I hear his sick minded wife said it too.

  • Reenaface

    That is so ridiculous.

  • Renee Bee

    I hope not.

  • Topic Influencer

    He's banned from THAT arena. Not ALL NBA games. Most real sports heads travel. My aunt is an Alabama alumn. Not even gonna layout how much money they spend following team around. So his ass can go to a say Kings vs Jazz game STILL. Which is not.e.nuff! Had a chance to take a real stand and this is what y'all come up with Adam Silver?

    Don't agree with the fine on Westbrook either. Fukk yall. https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/236ffd248f6d917306fb8afa3e1c0fbaafad1639eeb5cd577c3b63edf5867757.gif

  • The Gay Tupac

    Man I was just posting screen shots and screen video recordings that have been going around Twitter of that guy Shane Keisel's Twitter before he deleted it. He says "N***** boy" in a tweet that is dated hours after the game. That guy Shane didn't think he'd get that much attention huh. Racist moron!

  • The Gay Tupac

    So glad that guy got banned. I was reposting screen shots and screen recordings of Shane Keisel's Twitter before he deleted it. He has a tweet that says "N***** boy" which was tweeted by him hours after that game where he got into it with Russell Westbrook. He also told Russ to go back to where he came from ending it with "#MAGA" Twitter even had the number to his job and his cell phone which he changed. I even called the job out curiosity lol The lady at the delearship picked up sounding exhausted as she stated the company greeting. People must've been harassing that Toyota dealership where he worked. https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/3b9eefb74d9a78a76f05dccec0540207f3cd09e0dd6bb584a34d294fa83dcae8.png

    Here is the screen shot of the screen recording someone took that has been going around before the racist jerk deleted his profile. See the jerks retweet about black athletes being called monkies? Despicable. It's on my Twitter @TheGayTupac That jerk thought he could just delete his whole profile but forgot that the Internet was coming for him once he came at Russ. https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/9dc37e3b1e58a97cf879efc98a953458e900b2e725d6eca5b24b4fbe08cf2996.png

    Oh there was some white people who doubted whether these racist tweets were authentic and they were proven as legit: before he deleted you see his follower count and the number of tweets he has sent overall. Legit profile from him. Here is a look, you see the follower count with that racist tweet of his using the word "N*****" https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/8800045b49c06bd23250ca0b4e3cc03ba2a83aec8d03ffb3589a0bcc54d4919f.png

  • chaisun

    I would have thought he was banned from all games until you mentioned it. Really and truly unfortunate.

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    And this dude is a former cop. That's the kind of cop that will stop a black man and end up shooting him for some bogus reason, just because of the racist mentality he comes into the situation with. Scary thing is, there are thousands of cops all over America who have the same mindset at this guy.

  • Rayne

    Why even support the game then. Mann ppl are stupid smh

  • Topic Influencer

    Bc you KNOW I WILL

  • Topic Influencer

    Yep. Its why it says the Utah Jazz banned him vs the NBA. I had to look into it yesterday when this tidbit dropped. Only banned from the Jazz arena. All events. So if there is a concert in his town he cant even go. But thats it. He can still go see his team when they play on the road.

    Why I also said the commissioner Adam Silver got it wrong and had a chance to make an example of this idiot and missed the mark. Banned from home games only, is the same light sentence the folks who started Malice at the Palace circa 2004 got.

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    That Toyota dealership shouldn't have such an open racist on their staff dealing with the public. Hopefully black people in the area will boycott that dealership until they get rid of him.

    You know what I have always wondered how they keep themselves from marrying their half-siblings when one man has more than one wife and then has multiple children by each wife.

    Do they wear a color-coded wrist band to make sure they don't date or marry their half-sibling and how far apart do you have to for it to be safe to marry a relative?

    Second cousin or third cousin?

    Offtopic - Chicago Police rushed to R. Kelly‘s Trump Tower condo Tuesday evening in fear that his girlfriends were attempting to carry out a “suicide pact.” It later proved to be a false alarm.

    In a police radio call shared online, a dispatcher, who received an anonymous call, can be heard telling officers that Kelly’s girlfriend Azriel Clary and “four other women, who are victims of R. Kelly are planning to carry out a suicide pact at one of the condos at Trump Tower.”

    The anonymous caller, however, did not specify when the alleged suicide would take place or give a specific unit number.

    Lord I hope these children dont kill themselves. They need mental help and how to get in your feet program.

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    I'm a Giants fan and I'm not too upset about it. Giants haven't made the playoffs since 2016 and probably weren't going this year either. They have lots of holes to fill, so if they can trade one good piece to maybe end up with 3 good pieces, I'm fine with that. They'll have to rebuild for a few years to be a strong playoff contender again.
    And this is probably good for Odell's career too. It has to suck being a really great player on a team that's not going anywhere.

  • Ni Ni

    So he still has four other women? I thought these two were the only ones now.

    Smh, if they do eventually end up killing themselves, those parents are going to really feel guilty.

    I am not surprised, but I remember one of my maternal grandmother's best friends married her first cousin and all of their children had physical issues--the son had one leg that was significantly shorter than the other, one of the sisters had very poor eyesight and the other daughter was borderline mentally retarded.

    I had a high-risk pregnancy and had to see a geneticist. When she asked me if I was related to my child's father I was stunned. I was like "wait, people really do that"? I learned a lot that day. I honestly just thought it was a stereotype. You know they always say that about people in WV.

  • justlooking

    Yes, it's a question they all high risk women are asked and people of Asian decent.

  • JV

    As a Browns fan, I'm over the moon. Baker and Odell will be ???. I just don't see how you move him for a mid-first and Peppers (who is a good player, but nothing special). Then again the Steelers got fleeced for Brown (3rd and 5th rounders) so maybe the NFL just doesn't know how to trade star receivers yet.

    Curious part for me is why draft Barkley #2, when you know RBs have a short shelf life if you're not going to go for it in his prime?? Giants were all set to take Haskins at #6 and make a run for it.

  • The Gay Tupac

    Oh that was you?! Sports and politics baby! Oh and pop culture! Love it!

    Not a lot of black people in Utah, but I feel you! Hopefully all well-meaning people boycott it.

  • Sassie

    They shouldn't have fined Westbrook. He's only human.

  • Sassie

    Well at least they are paid well, but I tend to agree with you.

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    Yeah, there's all kinds of mixed signals coming out of the Giants front office right now. If Barkley can be a Barry Sanders type of Hall of Famer like they think he is, they should be able to get a good 9-10 years out of him. Then if the draft Haskins, a good passrusher at 17, a good offensive lineman in the 2nd round, and a good linebacker in the 3rd round, and pick up some serviceable receivers to add to what they have right now, they might be on the way toward a fairly quick rebuild.

    Just like the Browns went from 0-16 two years ago to a legit contender today, the Giants can also become a factor again in a couple of years. But honestly, A LOT of things would have to fall into place just right for that to happen.

  • Trace da Ace

    well good!!! they should start banning them trolls...mess aint right...nobody should be harassed on their job...PERIOD!

  • JV

    Definitely, and also the other guy you got from the Browns, Zeitler, is probably a top-5 guard in the league, so that will help with run blocking. I just don't like how teams are going to stack the line on him now.

    They shouldn't fined him. Nobody should expect AAs to put up with the level of racist remarks from whites. GTFOH

    My question is, how are they going to prevent this man from buying a ticket under someone else’s name? Yeah, he can’t use his credit card, but they don’t ID you when you go to a game. You can buy a ticket from a scalper off the street.

  • PlayerP
