Russell Westbrook is getting married this weekend

New, comments

According to TMZ, the Thunder point guard will marry his longtime fiancée in a small ceremony over the weekend.

Taylor Swift Fan (and Thunder point guard) Russell Westbrook is getting married to his longtime girlfriend Nina Earl this weekend. The two have been engaged since last September and, according to TMZ Sports, the ceremony will be "low-key" and take place at an undisclosed location - likely so that weird, Westbrook-obsessed bloggers won't try and crash the thing.

The wedding is just another day in what is increasingly becoming the Summer of Russ. After starting the offseason with some MVP votes, Westbrook did his usual fashion thing while also releasing his first signature shoe, the Westbrook 0. Not to be outdone, he agreed to use his name to sell a $350 cologne. Then, he was named cover athlete of the back-from-the-dead EA Sports NBA Live 16.

In the midst of all of that, he rocked out to Taylor Swift. On multiple occasions.

Meanwhile, his fiancée operates one of the great NBA Wife Instagram accounts, and traveled the world with her almost-husband. It's all just been so adorable.

Westbrook is the best. This summer is the best. Best wishes to the happy couple.
