Russell Westbrook is changing the game. Not only has the three-time NBA All-Star and Olympic gold medalist scored more points than any other point guard in the league this year, he's also elevated the league's fashion sense to new heights. As the Oklahoma City Thunder battle in search of their second straight Western Conference title this spring, all eyes will be on Westbrook. The same man who brings the ball up court during the game also brings a new sophistication to getting dressed after the game. When Westbrook signed with Jordan Brand last October, MJ praised his style both on and off the court. We couldn't agree more.
Westbrook is only the third professional basketball player to appear on the cover of Complex, joining living legends Kobe Bryant and Allen Iverson. He's also the first NBA star to be spotted kicking it with AndrÃ© Leon Talley during New York fashion week. We called on ace lensman Kareem Black to photograph the Lawndale, CA native in his adopted hometown of Oklahoma City. Then staff writer Jian DeLeon traveled to Los Angeles and OKC to put together an in-depth profile of the NBA's style MVP. The magazine goes on sale April 2, but you can check out the cover story and photo shoot right now...
