One of Jordan Brand’s upcoming Air Jordan releases 2019 will a Why Not Zer0.2 colorway paying tribute to Russell Westbrook’s deceased friend. Every opportunity he gets, Russell Westbrook honors his late friend, Khelcey Barrs III. Khelcey has been a source of inspiration and motivation for him. Remembering his friend has given Russell Westbrook an extra drive and push throughout his professional basketball career. Consequently, not only has he become one of the greatest talents in the sports and accomplish what Khelcey could potentially have, had he still been around today. Thus, Russell Westbrook has nicknamed his latest Jordan Why Not Zer0.2 colorway Khelcey Barrs III.
It seems that these four brand new colorways of the Jordan Why Not Zer0.2 will be among the Air Jordan releases 2019 this summer. Until the beginning of last year, Russell Westbrook did not officially have a signature basketball sneaker model that he could rock on the court. That all changed when Jordan Brand released the Why Not Zer0.1 on January 15th, 2018 at a price of $125. This year marked the retail debut of his second signature model, the Jordan Why Not Zer0.2, which hit the shelves in a “Future History” colorway. Since then, several unique colorways have arrived at retailers and four others are on their way.
One of three colorways of the Jordan Why Not Zer0.2 that will be joining next month’s Air Jordan releases 2019 has been dubbed “The Family.” Russell Westbrook’s second signature sneaker model from Jordan Brand made its retail debut earlier last month on January 10th at a price of $130. Soon after its retail debut, Jordan Brand-sponsored collegiate teams also received exclusive iterations of the Why Not Zer0.2 sporting their respective team colors. In addition to the “BHM” color that will hit the shelves next month, a Jordan Why Not Zer0.2 colorway dubbed “Own The Game” will also be a part of Jordan Brand’s 2019 NBA All-Star Footwear Collection.
During his off-seasons, Russell Westbrook is usually either training on his own or with his teammates. However, this week was relatively different for him.

Winning an NBA MVP award is no ordinary accomplishment. Most of the players who have won the MVP award are already in the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame and those MVPs who have not made it there yet will definitely end up being a part of it in the near future. One such Hall of Famer MVP is none other than Michael Jordan, who got enshrined as part of the Class of 2009. Since the G.O.A.T.’s MVP-winning season, Russell Westbrook recently became the second Jordan Brand athlete to win the MVP award, so Jordan Brand dropped this Air Jordan 31 RW variation in his honor.

This past Monday, the Oklahoma City Thunder was victorious against the New York Knicks with a score of 112-103.
