Russell Westbrook debuts Air Jordan XX8 in Thunder win over Nets

Debby Wong-USA TODAY Sports

Russell Westbrook was sporting his brand new Air Jordan XX8 in last night's win over the Brooklyn Nets. Here are some up-close images of the new model.

The report was that Russell Westbrook was planning to debut the new Air Jordan XX8 in last night's game against the Brooklyn Nets, and Westbrook did not disappoint. It was a smart decision too, because the Thunder were sporting their alternate 'away' jerseys and the black shoes paired with the black uniforms made for a strong image. Westbrook did his part in the affair, totaling 25 points and 9 assists, which meant that the shoes looked almost as cool as Westbrook's game.
