You hashtagged it #trendsetter.
RW Yes. From time to time I definitely start seeing people do things after I’ve done them, especially on Twitter and other social media. People always hashtag my name.
Oklahoma City isn’t known to be the most fashionable place. Where do you shop?
I do it on the road when we go to big cities—New York, L.A. I also do a lot of online shopping from places like TopMan, FarFetch, and Urban Outfitters.
What sort of designers or specific items are you into right now?
RW Right now I’m really into Paul Smith, but I wear everything. I’m into cutoff jean jackets, leather stuff…
Do other players ever resent you for your style reputation?
RW They do try to clown on me from time to time, but I don’t pay them any mind. If anything, though, they’re trying to figure me out, to see what I’m going to wear next.

Russell Westbrook combines these two aspects – style and athletic performance – of modern-day basket perfectly. Long-limbed and elegant, but also muscular and extremely fast – he almost seems to be made of rubber, like a ball that bounces crazily – the very young point guard for the Oklahoma City Thunder, besides being one of the most interesting basketball stars in the world, is also, and without a doubt, the division’s best dressed.
