After another investigation by the Utah Jazz, a second fan has been forbidden from attending events at Vivint Smart Home Arena, a source told the Deseret Nets’ Eric Woodyard.
The move comes in the wake of Monday’s verbal altercation between Jazz fan Shane Keisel and Oklahoma City Thunder star Russell Westbrook. Westbrook described the fan’s comments as “racial.” Keisel received a permanent ban while Westbrook received a $25,000 fine for his profane comments.
As the discussion about the conduct of NBA spectators continued to roil, footage from an incident in 2018 – also featuring Westbrook – resurfaced. In the clip, a Jazz fan repeatedly called the former MVP “boy,” leading Westbrook to ask arena security to intervene.
