Thunder-Rockets: Russell Westbrook arrives for Game 2 wearing outlandish outfit
Only Russell Westbrook would even attempt wearing this. And in the playoffs, no less
When it comes to pregame outfits, you might expect NBA superstars to bring their "A" games for the playoffs. If that's the case for Russell Westbrook, he has a rather interesting taste -- which we all know by now -- about what his top-end clothing looks like.
On Wednesday night ahead of Game 2 against the Rockets, Westbrook flaunted a half-buttoned Hawaiian shirt exposing his chest, patched up jeans, a bandana, sunglasses, and a bag that could carry a toothbrush and some hair gel at the most. Here's his glorious entrance into the Toyota Center.
And here's a still shot of him strutting like he owns the entire state of Texas, via The Oklahoman's Sarah Phipps.
Westbrook certainly has his own style and brand, both of which he maintains as well as anyone in the NBA. This is par for the course in the world of Russell and his outlandish outfits. In fact, if ever there were a night in which he wore a black shirt and regular jeans, you might suspect something's wrong with him.
Maybe it's a good thing Westbrook isn't shying away from the spotlight for OKC, which he presumably knew would come when he geared up for his gray concrete walk to the visiting locker room at Houston. He's coming off an awful performance in Game 1 in which he scored a team-high 22 points, but did so on an inefficient 6-of-23 shooting as the Thunder were blown out in the series opener. He's approaching Game 2 with an "I don't give a you-know-what" approach if we can glean anything from his outfit -- and that's exactly what OKC needs if it wants to steal one on the road on Wednesday night.
