This past Monday, the Oklahoma City Thunder was victorious against the New York Knicks with a score of 112-103. Russell Westbrook contributed to that score with 27 points and 18 rebounds along with 14 assists. The point guard of the Oklahoma City Thunder is now “averaging triple-double” in each game later in this season. Only one other NBA athlete came close to doing this and it was Oscar Robertson during the 1963-64 NBA season. Not sure if all the sneakerheads watched the recent Thunder vs Pistons game. However, those who did probably noticed that Russell Westbrook was laced up in a brand new, never-before-seen Air Jordan 31 colorway.
Oklahoma City Thunder’s all-around performance in this past Sunday’s game versus the Detroit Pistons was perhaps the finest one of this season. While all members of the Oklahoma City Thunder performed almost perfectly, Russell Westbrook’s performance was the most outstanding since he made yet another triple-double effort. Over the course of the game, Russell managed to score 17 points and 13 rebounds along with 15 assists as well. Not only is Russell currently the scoring leader in the NBA, in terms of career triple-doubles, he is now also tied for 6th all-time following the Thunder vs Pistons game. All in all, Russell is busy winning games.
Any sneakerhead who has been watching Russell Westbrook play as a part of the Oklahoma City Thunder this season will agree that he has been looking for “the best way to win games.” Every single night that he performs, he offers the audience and viewers something impressive to witness. The same goes for the sneakers that he rocks, which are more than often some Air Jordan iteration or another. This time around during the Thunder vs Pistons game, Russell was sporting the Air Jordan 31 rendition that is featured here. It is not surprising that the sneaker is dressed up in the official colors of the OKC, namely Sunset, Thunder Blue and Yellow, while also being equipped with all-White midsoles and featuring outsole tooling of the Air Jordan 30.
Considering that this is somewhat of a unique pair, it could be a one-of-one Player Exclusive designed only for Russell. Yet, Jordan Brand may drop this Air Jordan 31 colorway or a variation of it in the near future, so keep checking back.
