Chicken-Fried News: Metal gear




Russell Westbrook can wear whatever he wants.

Twitter recently lost its mind when OKC’s answer to Donatella Versace showed up to a game against the Los Angeles Lakers wearing a Slayer T-shirt and a bandana, like he just rode in on a Harley with the Sons of Anarchy.

“Does he even know Slayer is a band?” some people asked.

Yeah. Probably.

Westbrook has been an alive human being since 1988. Slayer has released nine albums since then.

Maybe he’s a fan. Or maybe he just liked the T-shirt. People aren’t prohibited from wearing band T-shirts if they don’t listen to them. (We’re looking at you in The Ramones shirt.)

That’s not even the weirdest outfit he has worn lately.

He donned a cape and a wood-brimmed top hat to a game against the Memphis Grizzlies.

The real question is why he doesn’t show up in a latex bodysuit that matches his skin tone with I DON’T CARE ABOUT YOUR FASHION RULES boldly emblazoned on his chest. Because Westbrook can wear anything he wants.

He’s very good at basketball.

If you practice your free throws and go hard to the hoop, maybe your boss would let you wear a scuba mask and a leotard to work, too.
