Russell Westbrook changed shoes at halftime

Sunday May 29th, 2016

Russell Westbrook and the Oklahoma City Thunder led by five at the half over the Golden State Warriors during Saturday’s Western Conference Finals Game 6, but apparently Westbrook felt he needed a change.

Westbrook, who started the game in orange sneakers, came out for the second half in his “Why Not?” Air Jordan XX8s.

Perhaps it’s move of confidence, or a superstition. Either way, those are cool kicks.
