Russell Westbrook joins Nike's Jordan Brand

Oklahoma City guard Russell Westbrook agreed to a multi-year endorsement deal with Nike's Jordan Brand, the company announced on Thursday. Michael Jordan commented on the new addition:

“We are very excited to welcome Russell to the Jordan family,” said Jordan. “Russell’s style, both on and off the court, combined with his love and dedication to the game make him a perfect fit for the Jordan Brand.  We love the drive and passion for basketball that Russell brings."

Many thought Westbrook would end up choosing Adidas, which he also considered. Chris Paul and Carmelo Anthony also endorse the Jordan Brand; Dwayne Wade recently left the brand to join Li-Ning.

After a 10-month hiatus from Twitter, Westbrook tweeted about the deal:
