Westbrook shows off a new OKC-inspired Air Jordan 3.
Russell Westbrook had himself one hell of an offseason. The Thunder's 28-year old All-Star point guard was named league MVP after averaging a triple-double for the entire season, his wife gave birth to a healthy baby boy, he published his own fashion book, and he inked a 10-year contract extension with Jordan Brand, which is said to be the most lucrative endorsement deal ever by any Jordan athlete.
Not to mention, last week's announcement that Westbrook agreed to a five-year $205 million contract extension with the Oklahoma City Thunder, which is the richest contract in NBA history. He is due $235 million over the next six seasons thru 2022-23. On top of that, the organization went out and traded for Paul George and Carmelo Anthony this Summer.
Needless to say, it's pretty good to be Russell Westbrook right now. And things just keep getting better.
Westbrook, who is the undisputed face of Jordan Brand (excluding the man himself, of course) recently debuted a brand new OKC inspired Air Jordan 3 PE, which looks like a remixed version of the iconic "Black Cement" colorway. This particular pair features the familiar black leather construction and cement printed accents, however they utilize orange accents, including the mudguard, eyelets and Jumpman.
As of now it appears this pair of 3s is an exclusive PE made just for Westbrook, similar to the vibrant OKC Thunder inspired pair he wore during a January 2013 matchup against the Lakers at Staples Center.
While this pair probably won't ever release, fans of the Air Jordan 3 can look forward to the return of the "Black Cement" colorway in 2018. Jordan Brand is allegedly planning on rereleasing the classic sneakers as part of their annual All-Star lineup in February. Additionally, there are rumors that the unreleased "Katrina" colorway could be releasing next year as well.
