Westbrook talks NBA style, Lil Uzi Vert +more.
Russell Westbrook has one of the most unique fashion styles in the NBA, or throughout sports for that matter, and it's all a product of his own imagination and creativity.
In a recent interview with Complex, Westbrook revealed that he doesn't need the help of a stylist and he will never hire one, "Because I don't need 'em. Stylists create looks for you. I create my own look."
Furthermore, as if you didn't know, Westbrook doesn't give a damn about what people say about his quirky outfits and he could care less if his unique sense of style turns him into a viral meme.
Do you care when people make memes out of your outfits?
"No. I don't really care about a lot of things, honestly. What people say don't change much about what I do. And that's the whole concept of the commercial. Don't do they, do you. That's how I do things."
Do you think you're the most stylish player in the league?
"Hm... It depends. It's hard to say if I'm the most stylish... People can say they're the most stylish, but you can't say that when other people dressed them. When somebody's picking your clothes for you, it's a little different. If people think I'm not, it doesn't really matter to me. When I leave the house, I definitely think I'm the best dressed when I'm doin' it."
As for Westbrook's recent Jordan commercial in which he dances to Lil Uzi Vert's "Do What I Want," the Thunder All-Star explained to Complex that he's one of his favorite young artists along with Migos, YG and Kendrick.
How did Lil Uzi Vert's song "Do What I Want" end up in your Jordan Brand commercial? Did you pick the song?
"Yeah, I picked the song. He's a good artist and he has great songs that I like to dance to. He's an up-and-coming artist that's doing great things. ["Now I Do What I Want"] was a song that were able to use in the commercial, and it came out great."
