He may not know turkey from ham, but Russell Westbrook tried his best behind the counter at Subway earlier this week.
Cementing his new endorsement with the chain eatery, the Oklahoma City Thunder's star point guard threw on plastic gloves and went to work alongside Jared Fogle making sandwiches at a franchise location in Westwood, Los Angeles.
Kiley Kmiec of NextImpulseSports.com spotted video of the promotional event, and the tale of the tape speaks volumes of Westbrook’s sandwich-building skills.
He might be a millionaire ball-handler, but getting a grip on those drenched slices of turkey was a tall order. He did give it his full attention, however, and must be commended for the level of focus he maintained while crafting $5 footlongs.
Westbrook kept his head down and his eyes on the sub—a fundamental sandwich-making stance. He also stacked bacon and was even allowed to work the sub-heating machine (read: microwave).
Keep doing you, Russell. And don’t skimp on the banana peppers.
Oil and vinegar on a meatball sub, Russell? Do I look like A COMMUNIST?
