Two days after issuing a permanent ban to fan Shane Keisel for his interaction with Oklahoma City Thunder guard Russell Westbrook, the Utah Jazz banned another fan for a previous incident involving Westbrook.
According to Eric Woodyard of the Deseret News on Friday, the latest fan was banned for "degrading and offensive conduct" against Westbrook during a playoff game last season.
Woodyard tweeted video of a fan calling Westbrook "boy" prior to Game 4 of last season's playoff series between the Jazz and Thunder at Vivint Smart Home Arena in Salt Lake City on April 23:
To Russell Westbrook’s defense, here is even further proof of his previous interactions with Utah Jazz fans. In this video, @russwest44 is called a “boy” by a Jazz fan ahead of Game 4 of OKC’s first-round playoff series against Utah on April 23, 2018 at Vivint Arena. pic.twitter.com/lc6slA7fTo— Eric Woodyard (@E_Woodyard) March 13, 2019
Per Woodyard, the Jazz conducted an investigation and tracked down the fan in the video. A source told Woodyard, "The Jazz aren't taking these matters lightly."
