Russell Westbrook & James Harden have excellent style.

Did you see what Russell Westbrook is wearing at the 2013 NBA Celebrity Game? Holy crap it’s awesome.

I’m not sure it beats what James Harden is wearing, though. I couldn’t find a picture of his outfit so I had to take one of my tv.

The shoes, which you can’t see here, are great.

I think Westbrook wins on clothes and Harden wins on glasses and, as always, facial hair. One of the best things I’ve ever read was the line in a Sports Illustrated article that said James Harden’s beard “juts outward from his chin as if trying to colonize other faces.” Love it.

JaVale McGee Reality Show Ideas

without comments

If you don’t know about JaVale McGee, peep this (it’s short):

 

(FYI he has a tiny mustache tattooed on his finger. I normally hate anything faux-mustache related — OMG that thing several years ago where every wedding had a photobooth with fake mustaches on a stick was the worst — but JaVale McGee manages to pull it off.)

I think there should be a JaVale McGee reality show or, in the alternative, JaVale McGee should appear on an existing or defunct reality show. Here are some ideas.

  • JaVale McGee is The Bachelor
  • JaVale McGee competes against stars of Catfish: The TV Show on The Amazing Race
  • House Hunters International with JaVale McGee (subtitle: Are The Ceilings High Enough)
  • JaVale McGee hangs out with X Games athletes and learns to snowboard and do snocross
  • Iron Chef America: JaVale McGee (in one episode, contestants will attempt to duplicate Noodles dishes for guest judge Kenneth Faried, who loves Noodles)
  • JaVale McGee’s Apprentice (high school basketball players complete a series of increasingly difficult slam dunks in an attempt to become JaVale McGee’s apprentice)
  • JaVale McGee Lawman (JaVale McGee fights crime and finds Zen in and around Denver)
  • Lockup Extended Stay (JaVale McGee visits inmates at high-security prisons around the country)
  • It’s JaVale McGee or the Dog (for one week, participants trade their problem canines for JaVale McGee)
  • Flavor of Love (JaVale McGee chooses dates for Flavor Flav)
  • Facial Hair Around the World
  • JaVale Ink (JaVale McGee helps you choose your next tattoo)
  • JaVale McGee is the Millionaire Matchmaker
  • Parking Wars (JaVale McGee enforces Denver’s parking laws)
  • The JaVale McGee and Nancy Grace Show (just kidding — I wouldn’t wish this on JaVale McGee)
  • So You Think You Can Dance with JaVale McGee
  • The Mole (that show was great) (is JaVale McGee the Mole or just adorably inept)
  • Are You Smarter than JaVale McGee? (short answer: no)
  • Who Wants to Marry JaVale McGee? (short answer: everyone)
  • JaVale McGee is Supernanny
  • JaVale McGee is Paris Hilton’s New BFF

I’m sure there are many other reality shows that could benefit from a dose of JaVale McGee — I mean really, who couldn’t?

See also The Nick and JaVale Show on YouTube.

Russell Westbrook isn’t feeling it tonight.

Russell Westbrook used so much energy scoring 43 points in tonight’s loss to the Heat he had none left to put into his wardrobe. I’d be feeling pretty subdued, too, if my team were down 1 game to 3 against LeBron and friends (to be fair, I like Wade but hate James). Better luck next time.

Russell Westbrook (and a dog and a kid)

In this episode of What’s Russell Westbrook Wearing, I present his post-game press conference interview from June 14, after the Thunder lost to the Heat (bummer). Remarkably, the star of this outfit isn’t the glasses — it’s the pants.

While we’re talking about fashion, today Soren dressed Coltrane up as Soren. That was confusing for everyone. Then he was all hey, I can be a dog.

I guess Soren was trying to

He thinks it's cool

I love Russell Westbrook.

without comments

Here is a picture of Russell Westbrook from the post-game interview after the Thunder beat the Heat on June 12. He wears awesome shirts and glasses after every game, but this particular shirt and these particular glasses are the best yet. I worry that it’s only a matter of time before his wardrobe, which gets progressively more awesome after every game, will eventually hit the point where it is impossible to become even more awesome.
