Fashion reigns supreme in the NBA  (see Paul, Chris). Sometimes, ugly fashion reigns supreme (see Bynum, Andrew; and Bryant, Kobe).  And it’s not only players, either – I’m looking at you, Craig Sager.

But the Fashion King award goes to none other than Russell Westbrook.

Westbrook has a long history of giving postgame news crews plenty to talk about – before they ever start asking questions about basketball.  The OKC point guard is entering year two of a five-year, $78-million dollar contract.  In other words: he’s got plenty of money to spend on outrageous outfits.  His impressive collection of skinny jeanscolorblind polos, and lens-less specs puts Urkel to shame.

But it’s not just press conferences that get Westbrook’s creative juices flowing. Perhaps this stylish sensibility is what also attracted him to New York Fashion Week – and landed him a seat next to Vogue editor-in-chief Anna Wintour.

It’s been a while (read: “never”) since I picked up a copy of Vogue, but who knows, maybe I’ll open a coming issue to see Russell Westbrook gazing back.

    Who cares about his ridiculous outfits. I live in Atlanta. Take a stroll through Lenox mall and you will see far more ridiculous outfits than his. I don’t see this becoming a trend at all.
