Oklahoma City Thunder guard Russell Westbrook has been a constant topic in NBA circles after his heated exchange with a Utah Jazz fan, whom he claims made racial comments at him during Monday’s game. A review done by the Jazz following the incident ended in the fan being banned from the arena.
#Blazers’ C.J. McCollum on Westbrook incident with #Jazz fan - “It’s unfortunate. Fans are very passionate, sometimes they cross the line. Things need to be handled differently and in the heat of the moment, it’s hard for us to respond in a mature manner because this is our job.” pic.twitter.com/UvwxuCKU6d— Tomer Azarly (@TomerAzarly) March 13, 2019
McCollum stresses the need for rules about fan interaction with players during games to be tightened up.
