Russell Westbrook has had quite the year. After long-time running mate Kevin Durant joined the Warriors last summer, Russ embarked on arguably the greatest statistical season in NBA history, which culminated in his first-ever MVP award. Though the Thunder would eventually get bounced from the playoffs in the opening round, Westbrook has been keeping busy.
Most recently, he did a tour of China with Nike to promote his “Why Not?” collection for Jordan Brand, which started with a visit to the Jordan Summer League City Finals in Guangzhou where he was greeted by a massive crowd.
From there, he went on to make an appearance at the grand opening of a Jordan Brand store in Shanghai.
He also attended a fashion show while he was in Shanghai to give audience members a glimpse of some of the new looks from his “Why Not?” collection of sports apparel. In Taipei, at a “Commit to Win” event for Jordan Brand, Westbrook had some fun with some local players who are members of the Jordan Brand Flight Club and took them on in a skills challenge.
Westbrook’s trip to China may not be the viral sensation that was #ChinaKlay earlier this summer, but it certainly looks like he had a great time regardless and gave the international fans something to cheer about.
