It’s the moment we’ve all been waiting for. After years of having play alongside Kevin Durant in the Robin role, Russell Westbrook will finally have a shot at being Batman at least for a few weeks while Durant deals with a foot injury. While Westbrook will downplay the situation and say that his role will not change in KD’s absence, we all have this feeling deep down that Westbrook is itching to prove that he can play the lead dog. These next few weeks will be quite the test as for the man tasked with rocking the Air Jordan XX9, which was in full display last night as Westbrook and his OKC Thunder took on their old rivals the Memphis Grizzlies in preseason action.
As for the rest of the night in kicks, we see more Nike Kobe 9 EMs, Jimmer Fredette rocking a suspicious pair of Under Armour, new colorways of the adidas CrazyLight Boost and much more.
