Russell Westbrook: Fashion Icon

In this week's issue of SI, Lee Jenkins profiles Russell Westbrook (and his alter-ego, Maniac Russ) as he attempts to carry the Kevin Durant-less Thunder into the playoffs.

Check out the above gallery of his best off-the-court look  (click here for full-size version).
