The Utah franchise announced that Shane Keisel is banned from entering any type of event at the Vivint Smart Home Arena.

The Utah Jazz have cut the bitter controversy unleashed by the racist insults of one of their fans Russell Westbrook: han Shane Keisel prohibited the entry for life to any type of event held at the Vivint Smart Home Arena. The franchise bases its sanction on "excessive and derogatory verbal abuse directed (by Keisel) to a player during a match, violating the NBA Code of Conduct."

"Everyone deserves the opportunity to enjoy and play in a safe, positive and inclusive environment Offensive and abusive behavior does not reflect the values of the Miller family, our organization and this community We all have a responsibility to respect basketball and, more importantly, ourselves as human beings. This has always been a hallmark of our incredible fan base and should always be our standard to move forward, "said Steve Starks, president of the Utah Jazz, in a statement.

The Utah Jazz statement

The penalty comes after exhaustive investigation of the franchise through the collection of images and different statements of witnesses, once the Westbrook video was made public laughing with a spectator. "I promise you, do you think I'm playing? I swear to God, I swear to God, I'm going to fuck you, I'm going to screw you and your wife, you'll regret it," you could hear the base of Oklahoma , which responded in this way to the racist attack of Keisel: "Get on your knees as you are used to" .

"I will not allow you to continue disrespecting my family. And if I had to do it again, I would say exactly the same Because what I have done is defend myself, my family, my children, my wife, my mother, my father ... I hope that someone else will do the same, as for hitting his wife I have never laid a hand on a woman and I never will I. I have never been involved in a case of domestic violence, I had never done it before, but once she said the comment her wife also repeated the same thing. I know that only the end of the video has been seen, but the beginning is much more important disrespectful that what has been heard ", declared at the end of the meeting Westbrook.

Keisel and his racist messages

El also spoke was Keisel himself, who defended himself underlining that he had made no disparaging comment to the player of OKC, but that he simply tried to joke with him after hearing that he burned the bench. After leaving on television, many phrases of the fan in social networks came to light long ago with Westbrook and racist messages, at the same time he declared himself a follower of Donald Trump with the hashtag # MAGA (Make America Great Again), the famous appointment that the now president of the United States made famous in campaign.
