Russell Westbrook Post Game Shirts: Rating His Latest Nerd-Chic Looks
Oklahoma City Thunder's Russell Westbrook owns the podium with every last geek shirt he owns. Here is a breakdown of his recent best.
Russell Westbrook never met a ball he wanted to pass, and he certainly never met a shirt he wasn't willing to buy and then wear in a postgame press conference.
Here is the grace and grandeur of a millionaire wanting nothing more than to cause a "WTF" with every last shirt he wears.
I love it.
I can't get enough of the Robin to Kevin Durant's Batman owning the entire NBA when it comes to start trends. Sure, those trends may become popular in a few decades, but there is nothing wrong with being ahead of your time.
Here are some of the best recent work from Westbrook's closet.
5. Purple-Polka Nightmare
The Thunder just beat the Spurs in Game 6 of the Western Conference Finals, and Westbrook decided to go with the most muted thing he has in his wardrobe.
I can't hate because I know I has something similar I rocked in the early 90's. BTW, friends don't let friends wear purple polka dots.

4. Nerd Photo Shoot
Kevin Durant got into the action after a game with the Spurs, just long enough to give us a base line for what a normal person might wear.
Sure, his shirt is nerdy, but it pales compared to the amazing technicolored dream shirt worn by Westbrook. The more I look at it, the more I like though.

3. Hobo Chic
Westbrook saw this thing on a rack and thought this particular shirt would not only look good on a human, it would look on himself.
Sure, he could have made this look by tearing up a few shirts at home and then stitching them together, but there is a problem.
All his other shirts have teddy bears and airplanes on them.

2. Sally Jesse Urkel
After their Game 1 win, I am sure the Thunder experienced some measured celebration. Well, there is nothing measured about this get up.
Westbrook brings back the wonderful Sally Jessy Raphael glasses and pairs them like a fine wine with his nerdy Steve Urkel shirt.
I have the same prints on a onesie I have from when I was a toddler.

1. Tacky Bowler
Russell Westbrook does his best to look like an old bowling buddy. All he needs is some bowling shoes and a PBR in his hand.
I have to say, I love this one.
It makes me laugh every single time I see it from the sheer ridiculousness of it all. The man is wearing teddy bears like other men wear tuxedos.
You want swag. Wear that thing with a straight face.
