By now, we all know that Russell Westbrook is as much of a fashion risk-taker off the court as he is a beast on it, and the NBA all-star proved that once again by gracing the cover of Sports Illustrated in a leopard print coat.
The Oklahoma City Thunder player is one of a handful of athletes to get a solo cover of the magazine's "Fashionable 50" issue (Victor Cruz, who tops the list, is another) and, sartorially, Westbrook didn't disappoint. The cover look is classic Russell: sporty and edgy with a flamboyant touch. Who doesn't love a man who can confidently pull off snug white jeans and animal print?
Peep Russell's boundary-pushing cover, and Victor's more traditional one, below:
