NBA MVP and Oklahoma City Thunder star Russell Westbrook wore a "Fight Racism" shirt to Sports Illustrated's Fashionable 50 event in Los Angeles on Tuesday night.

"I just love the shirt. Obviously, it stands for a lot of things," Westbrook told SI's Maggie Gray on the red carpet show. "I love the shirt and the way kind of it rips. Just the whole message in the rips go all together in my opinion. Just putting on a nice vintage look."

Westbrook is featured on the cover of the latest issue of Sports Illustrated, which celebrates the top 50 fashionable athletes in the world of sports.
