Here are a few select quotes:

ESQ: big congrats to you on being their first official cover subject for this special issue. How was the experience?

Russell Westbrook: Just amazing, so great! It started out a little questionable because of the weather [in Oklahoma City] but it ended up being a great experience and day. I am really happy with it.

ESQ: Do you have a favorite look?

RW: Yeah, probably the cover shot with the pink pants, baby blue blazer, and cardigan. I liked all of the elements, like the sunglasses and the bag. Beyond my glasses [the notorious lensless ones], I am not so much an accessories guy — but I am really starting to get into it more.

ESQ: In the ESPN piece, the author refers to you as, "The NBA's biggest sartorial enigma," — which is interesting, considering that it was just last season that the industry and the press had you pegged as the leader of the "geek chic" phenomenon. Has it been a conscious decision to keep them guessing or do you not play in to all of that? The labeling and the characterizing?

RW: Ha! I like that, actually. It sounds fancy. You know, I don't think about it that much. I don't plan things, I just go with and wear what I'm feeling. And that can be different every day.
