LeBron James, Russell Westbrook needle Kevin Durant over Redskins

Kevin Durant RedskinsLeBron James and Russell Westbrook needeled Kevin Durant on Monday night over the Washington Redskins’ loss to the Philadelphia Eagles on national TV.

LeBron and Russ are both big Dallas Cowboys fans — LeBron was even at the stadium watching the Cowboys in Sunday Night Football — so they couldn’t resist taking a shot at KD over the DC native’s team getting run by the Eagles.

Around the time the Eagles had blown the game open, LeBron sent this tweet to KD:

Westbrook, who is Durant’s teammate on the Oklahoma City Thunder, sounded like he wanted to rub it in over the phone:

Russell Westbrook wears ridiculous outfit to Teen Choice Awards

Russell Westbrook Teen Choice Awards

It pains me to have to continually do this considering he is a UCLA guy, but Russell Westbrook is just asking for this type of negative feedback. I mean how else can you explain some of the ridiculous fashion choices he makes?

The Oklahoma City Thunder guard is rehabbing a knee injury, but he still has his wacky fashion sense on lock. He shared the picture seen at the top of himself with his mother at the Teen Choice Awards on Sunday. His bottoms are tight white capri-style pants, but I have no idea what’s going on on top. It looks like a white sleeveless shirt that someone spilled paint on, and then it looks like he has a priest-style collar, and some rabbi-like tallit down the front. In addition to being a major fashion foul, that’s a conflict of religions right there. You can’t mix methodologies in your outfits, Russ!

Here’s another look at his clothes:

Russell Westbrook assists fan with Twitter marriage proposal

Russell WestbrookRussell Westbrook may be injured, but that does not mean he has been forgotten by Oklahoma City Thunder fans. In fact, one fan even enlisted the Thunder guard’s help with a marriage proposal.

Charlie Bright, who is a recent Oklahoma graduate and huge Thunder fan, reached out to Westbrook with a Facebook message last week asking the Thunder star to assist him with a wedding proposal. It took a few days, but Westbrook got back to him and they arranged details.

According to The Oklahoman, Bright set things up so that Westbrook would tweet the bride-to-be at a specific time on Friday. Bright and his fiancee, Rachel Haycraft, were walking together and Bright encouraged her to check her Twitter. Then she says she faced a confluence of two crazy things — her favorite player, Russell Westbrook, mentioning her on Twitter, and her boyfriend proposing to her.

“I’m on Twitter a lot anyway, but I’ve never really had someone suggest, ‘Hey, why don’t you check Twitter right now,’” Haycraft told The Oklahoman. “But he asked me to get on there and I did and I saw on the app that Russell had mentioned me and I was like, ‘Why did Russell mention me?’ Then I looked at the tweet and was like, ‘Oh my gosh, this is crazy’. First of all that Russell Westbrook is tweeting at me and then that you are asking to marry me, it was all wrapped into one, it was crazy.”

Here’s the tweet in question:

Russell Westbrook wears ‘Let’s Go Thunder’ T-shirt, cheers team on (Picture)


Russell Westbrook is stuck with the role of cheerleader for the Oklahoma City Thunder while he is out recovering from a knee injury. On Wednesday night, he was in attendance rooting for his teammates while wearing a “Let’s Go Thunder” shirt. Yes, THE Russell Westbrook.

Many of you are probably thinking to yourselves, “So what?” Let us not forget that this is the same Westbrook who wears cutoff sleeves and a gold chain to his postgame press conferences. This is the same guy who had the stones to wear this outfit during All-Star weekend earlier this year.

Seeing Westbrook wearing something we can’t make fun of is like seeing Superman without his cape. Something just isn’t right.

It’s that time of the year again. You know, the one where we all think Russell Westbrook is messing with us with the stuff he wears to his playoff postgame press conference but he’s really just being Russell Westbrook.

The Oklahoma City Thunder guard kicked things off in a big way after a 120-91 win over the Houston Rockets on Sunday night. As you can see from the photo that @cjzero passed along, Westbrook went with cutoff sleeves and a gold chain. Naturally, he also busted out some fantastic grandma glasses.

Westbrook always dresses pretty funny (his outfit during All-Star weekend is a perfect example), but the playoffs are his time to shine. We know the outrageous clothing will be there. Thunder fans can only hope the fantastic play on the court will be as well.

Kevin Durant: Russell Westbrook is a diva, I call him Sasha Fierce

Kevin-Durant-Russell-Westbrook-ThunderOklahoma City Thunder stars Kevin Durant and Russell Westbrook have had some minor problems with one another in the past, but they seem to have worked through all that and developed a very functional relationship. They have certainly been connecting on the court, but their friendship off the court seems to be strengthening as well.

Later this month, ESPN The Magazine will be running a feature on Westbrook that focuses on his fashion sense. According to Durant, that sense of fashion has led to a new nickname for Westbrook.

“Oh, he’s a diva,” Durant told ESPN the Magazine. “I call him Sasha Fierce. On the court, he’s a fierce competitor. Off the court, he’s chilling in front of the mirror, making sure he got the right lip balm on.”

If you are unfamiliar with Westbrook’s quirky sense of fashion, we have a couple of perfect examples for you here and here. The 24-year-old wears some of the whackiest crap we have ever seen to press conferences. Whether it’s picking out a ridiculous shirt or wearing some fake hipster glasses, it’s no secret that Westbrook puts a lot of thought into how he looks when he leaves home. And he doesn’t care what anyone thinks about it.

“He don’t care what people say when he plays or when he dresses up,” Thabo Sefolosha said.

Nick Collison added that it is that type of confidence from Westbrook that makes him such an effective player.

“He does what he likes to do,” Collison said. “He knows what he is and he doesn’t care what other people want him to be. That’s how he plays and that’s how he carries himself.”

Durant isn’t the first teammate of Westbrook’s to call him a diva and he probably won’t be the last, but Thunder fans should keep their fingers crossed that their star point guard never loses that confidence. If Westbrook weren’t Sasha Fierce off the court, he might not be leading one of the best offenses in the NBA on it.

Below is a video from Levi’s of Westbrook talking about his fashion:

Russell Westbrook makes fashion statement at All-Star Weekend (Pictures)

Russell Westbrook suspenders

Russell Westbrook used one of the NBA’s biggest stages to prove to everyone that he still has a knack for wearing awful clothes.

The Oklahoma City guard wore outrageous outfit after outrageous outfit throughout NBA All-Star Weekend in Houston. The outfit pictured above is what he wore to Sunday’s All-Star Game. That’s tight pants, a collared short-sleeve shirt that got outlawed in the 80s, a red bow tie, matching red suspenders, glasses, and a little cap on his head. He looked like he was getting ready for a job interview to work at the Matterhorn in Disneyland. I bet if you look hard enough, you could find Kevin Durant hiding in his lederhosen.

On Saturday he wore this alphabet shirt to the festivities, which included the Slam Dunk Contest:
