Russell Westbrook is returning to the lineup for the Oklahoma City Thunder on Thursday night after missing 27 straight games because of a knee injury. Not only is this a big day for the Thunder and Westbrook, but it’s also a special day for the point guard’s mother, who is celebrating her birthday.
Westbrook decided to honor his mom by wishing her a happy birthday on his shoes. He showed off the above photo on Instagram, a few hours before the game.
We like the shoutout and just hope that Russ won’t be fined for writing on his shoes!
