SALT LAKE CITY, Utah – Hours after the incident between Oklahoma City Thunder star Russell Westbrook and a Jazz fan and his wife.

Westbrook was captured on video, berating, swearing at and threatening to fight a Jazz fan at Vivint Smart Home Arena.

Since the incident, Westbrook has released a statement to the media and the fan spoke to KSL Sports’ Jeremiah Jensen after the game.

The Thunder beat the Jazz 98-89.

Now that all of the information is out on social media, current and former NBA players reacted to the incident on their social platforms.

Longtime NBA veteran Matt Barnes said on Twitter that Jazz fans are the most racist in the NBA.

Miami Heat star Dwyane Wade took to Twitter after he saw the video of the interview with the fan.

Current Utah Jazz forward Thabo Sefolosha – former teammate of Russell Westbrook – put a statement on Instagram.
