With so much hype surrounding Durant vs. Westbrook 1.0, we should've known Russell Westbrook would show up to tonight's Golden State vs. Oklahoma City game wearing something crazy. I don't think anyone, however, expected him to show up wearing a subtweet.
Westbrook walked into Oracle Arena wearing a pink vest reading "Official Photographer."
If it seems random, it's probably not. Kevin Durant is known for his love of photography. You might remember the photos of Durant on the sidelines that surfaced when he was a credentialed photographer for this year's Super Bowl.

So, what could it mean? A few things. It could be a subtle nod to Durant—"hey, I'm coming for you tonight." It could signify Westbrook's belief that he's the real deal while Durant is fake—"I'm an official photographer, you're a wannabe." Or it could be Westbrook trolling all of us. That seems to be the likeliest possibility.
Westbrook insists it's a total coincidence.

While Durant insists he has no beef with Westbrook or the Thunder, Westbrook has taken subtle shots at his former teammate before. Remember his recent Jordan brand commercial?
Yeah. Russ isn't afraid of some shade.
Let's get these guys on the court and this matchup underway already. The action starts at 10:30 p.m. EST on TNT.
