Update: The Cavaliers have identified the fan in question who made the comments and banned him from games indfefinitely, with a review to come in one year, according to reporter Dave McMenamin.

Hours after the game, Mills quote tweeted the user who shared the video saying, "Thanks @thats_Z_Truth".

"I've found how important it is for me to be a role model for indigenous Australians", Mills said. "Jamaica just called, they want their bobsledder back".

"I think it's fair to say that I've been called a lot worse", Mills said (via KSAT).
