On the basketball court, Russell Westbrook doesn't seem to mind what people think about him. He's been criticized for everything from shooting too much to not giving the ball to Kevin Durant enough. But, off it? Well, that's a whole other story. In a new piece in ESPN The Magazine, KD reveals that he has a special nickname for Westbrook. That nickname is "Sasha Fierce." And, he gave it to him because Westbrook is obsessed with the way he looks.

"On the court, he's a fierce competitor," KD says. "Off the court, he's chilling in front of the mirror, making sure he got the right lip balm on."

Ha. That's funny. But, that kind of obsession to detail did help Russ land on our cover. Just sayin'.
