Didn't see any racist Tweets. I did see that Westbrook reported he said "get on your knees like you used to" and the fan said sit down and ice your knees.You see his old racist tweets 14red? You see the jazz did an investigation and confirmed what russ alleged?
Two wrongs dont make a right, they both were in the wrong
Where in the heck do you get that? I just said I sided with the Jazz organization because they banned the guy for life. They did their investigation. End of story.14red condones racism!
Eye witness reports sided with Russ. His tweets speak for themself
You condone racism. 14red is a racist end of discussion. What you permit, you condone
Never had....just last season two times in Utah with fans in the playoff series. And just a few weeks ago he got into it with a kid...A KID...sitting courtside.Russ has never had an altercation with a fan before and Utah fans are notorious for being the worst in the league (in terms of nastiness to players)
Prove it. Prove that the Jazz didn't find video evidence/enough eye witnesses that back Westbrook's side of the story. You can't and you won't because you're talking out of your again.Folks we are moving closer and closer to a "malace in the Palace" like occurred with Ron Artest and Stephen Jackson.
Fans are allowed to get out of control. Security is lacking, but yet these arenas continue to put seats nearer and nearer to the players.
Players are as engaging to fans as ever before.
Now I don't condone what the fan said to Westbrook, and so far it's been a he said/ he didn't say premise. The Jazz, fearing a real mutiny with their own fans, took the easy route and banned the guy for life. I don't have a problem with that, and the Jazz certainly will fill that guys seat quickly.
But the issue is players confronting fans and fans being allowed to say whatever they want. This guy should have been walked out of the arena after the first couple of sentences. And Westbrook, should have never confronted the fan. The piddly fine does NOTHING to pursuade Westbrook from doing this again. Would you be shocked if Westbrook went into the stands after a fan?? I wouldn't.
And it's interesting...last week, Larry Dolan, the owner of the Knicks, basically ejected a fan himself from a game and got all kinds of flack from people. Westbrook THREATENS a fan, and ESPN's talking heads and others back the player???
