Russell Westbrook Threatens to Beat a Fan’s Ass Up and Down the Court

USA Today

Russell Westbrook might want to sit on the bench until he cools down.

On Monday, during the OKC Thunder vs. Utah Jazz game, Westbrook lost his composure and cursed out a fan and the fan’s wife. According to the fan, it was completely uncalled for, seeing as though he was just busting the player’s balls…you know…like the typical behavior at any sporting event. Shane Keisel, the fan, says Westbrook crossed the line when he threatened to beat up his wife.

“I swear to God, I’ll f*ck you up, you and your wife. I’ll f*ck you up.”

Keisel reports that his wife was innocent, and therefore, Westbrook should have left her alone.

“I’m not afraid of the guy. Come on up. But when you threaten a woman that’s 5 feet tall and 110 pounds, you’re a big man. So this guy needs to be exposed.”

However, Westbrook is telling a different story. According to the basketball player, the fan was downright disrespectful.

The Thunder star claims that Keisel spit something racially charged at him. And for that, he had the right to defend his character. It’s something he claims to not regret doing.

“And if I had to do it again, I would say the same exact thing, because I truly will stand up for myself, for my family, for my kids, for my wife, for my mom, for my dad every single time.

“As for beating up his wife, I have never put my hand on a woman; I never will. Never been in any domestic violence before. Never have before, but once he said the comment, his wife repeated the same thing to me as well. So that’s kind of how that started.”
