Fashion icon and Oklahoma City Thunder basketball player Russell Westbrook visited The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon Sept. 8 to discuss, among other things, his eclectic wardrobe.
The point guard was dubbed an avant-garde trendsetter by The Washington Post after he recently showed up at New York Fashion Week to watch the new DKNY styles come down the runway, but the self-proclaimed #fashionking was reminded by Fallon that not everyone is a fan of his out-there menswear.
After getting plenty of hoots and hollers from the ladies in The Tonight Show crowd for pictures of his pre-game looks, Westbrook asked the host, Thats pretty fresh, dont you think?
But Fallon mentioned an April quote from former NBA all-star and current TNT network basketball commentator Charles Barkley, who remarked, What the hell? What the hell is that?! after Westbrook showed up to a game in a David Osborne-designed denim patchwork shirt.
To his credit, the recently re-signed Thunder star seemed unfazed by the criticism and simply retorted, Who? when Barkleys critique was mentioned.
Chicken-Fried News is sure the Round Mound of Rebound will have plenty more to say about OKCs favorite devoted follower of fashion as the TNT basketball crew covers Westbrooks Nov. 3 reunion game with former teammate Kevin Durant and the Golden State Warriors.
