Oklahoma City Thunder’s Russell Westbrook is an assassin on the court and a fashion (genius?) off of it. Before the Thunder’s game five loss to the Golden State Warriors, the two sides of Westbrook combined for one last hoorah before the Thunder awaited the NBA Finals.
Only the last hoorah didn’t happen as the Warriors forced a game six with OKC now leading the series 3-2. So what was it about Westbrook’s attire that’s caught attention (outside of his attire always catching attention)?
His color scheme, if you’ve noticed is that of someone in mourning. Yep, Westbrook wore all black to the “funeral” of the Warriors, as he, Kevin Durant and the Thunder sought, prematurely, to bury the Warriors.
This wasn’t a coincidence either, as Russ has worn similar attire in other potential elimination games this post season.
Obviously, that never happened and Westbrook’s subtle troll just took a turn for the worse.
Maybe Durant’s “Slim Reaper” can assist with the actual burial of the Warriors Saturday night.
