Who would Jordan get to replace Dwyane Wade? Russell Westbrook, that's who. (And we suspect this won't be the last JB move this offseason.) After much speculation, today it has officially been announced that two-time NBA All-Star Russell Westbrook has signed a multi-year endorsement agreement with Jordan Brand. “We are very excited to welcome Russell to the Jordan family,” said Michael Jordan. “Russell’s style, both on and off the court, combined with his love and dedication to the game make him a perfect fit for the Jordan Brand. We love the drive and passion for basketball that Russell brings." Westbrook has already been wearing Jordans during the pre-season — it will be interesting to see what he's in on opening night. Stay tuned.
