Russell Westbrook refused to acknowledge Charles Barkley on The Tonight Show

Friday September 9th, 2016

Russell Westbrook is making questionable fashion choices, and he’s not going to pay attention to anyone criticizing him.

The Thunder star joined Jimmy Fallon on The Tonight Show on Thursday and discussed some of his pregame outfit choices. When Fallon mentioned that NBA on TNT analyst Charles Barkley wasn’t a big fan, Russ delivered a perfect one-word answer:



That came in response to Barkley screaming “What the hell!? What the hell is that!?” at one of Westbrook’s shirts in May.


Might have to side with the Chuckster here. I’m not quite sure what Russ was going for with that outfit. But regardless of how you feel about it, the response was phenomenal.
