(CNN)After making a threat against a fan, NBA star Russell Westbrook expressed no remorse for his words, saying he will "not continue to take disrespect" from fans.

During Monday's game against the Utah Jazz in Salt Lake City, Westbrook and a fan had a heated exchange, with video posted to social media -- which subsequently went viral -- showing Westbrook say, "I will f*** you up. You and your wife."
The Oklahoma City Thunder point guard later told reporters he was reacting to abuse from the fans -- which is not seen on video posted to social media -- who he alleged told him "to get down on your knees like you're used to."
