Happy Birthday Russell Westbrook! OKC’s very own and Jordan Brand’s finest brand representative Russell Westbrook has a game a lot like his personal style: risk-taking and head-turning. And while the NBA season is still young, there’s been a lot to look forward to – particularly since the superstar guard made an unforeseen early arrival from his season-ending injury an entire four to six weeks earlier than expected. In honor of Number Zero’s birthday festivities, we’ve decided to highlight some of his best moments under the Jumpman logo since the moment the partnership was made official back in October of 2012 to his heroic return earlier this month.
Whether it was the introduction of his Air Jordan III “Thunder” PE during the high-profile game against the Lakers or his mismatching Air Jordan XX8s at last year’s All-Star Game, Russell’s daring style tastes have fit right in with the Jumpman brand. It’s quite clear that Westbrook will continue to carry Jordan signatures on-court for now with his bonafide elite status in the league, which means that there’s a lot in store in regards to his on-feet selections (and off-the-court fashion options). Continue one below to get a full rundown of Russell Westbrook’s key Jordan Brand moments and let us know which pair that he’s worn in his past year has been your favorite.
