For someone who seems to be extra careful about how he looks, Russell Westbrook sure doesn't seem like he cares how he looks.
On the court, anyway.
One of the best dressed, according to GQ magazine, Westbrook should consider a make-over to repair what has to be a decreasing public image.
But first, let's get this straight: Westbrook is one of the best players in the league. A true talent who impacts the game in a way no other guard in the league does. He shoots a lot, but he also wins lots of games.
But with a simple, "Say Yes to the Press," approach Westbrook would go from one of the most-criticized players to one of the most-liked. A smile wouldn't be a bad idea, either.
And then somehow those 3-of-16 shooting nights, like he dropped off against Golden State Wednesday night, would be a lot more easy to live with.

BEST OF MAXIM
Kevin Durant takes Matt Barnes one-on-one and finishes with the HUGE flush. Durant’s big jam came during the 4th quarter of Tuesday night’s game and put the Thunder up 101-85 at Staples Center, as they were in total control over the Clippers and would eventually walk away with the 109-97 win against a strong Western Conference foe. Durant finished with 32 points, 7 assists and...
One of the more underrated players in the NBA has to be Golden State guard Stephen Curry and last night, he put together a solid performance in a win over the Oklahoma City Thunder.In the third quarter of play, watch as Curry shakes Russell Westbrook to get the basket and a few seconds after decides to celebrate with a shimmy shake:
Yesterday, we started off a new series in the WFNY Stats & Info column. Today, I follow up on some of the same themes.
After looking at breakdown of the Cavs relatively improved play in their last 15 games, I couldn’t resist looking into how it compared to the Oklahoma City Thunder in 2008-09. As I wrote at great length in The Diff on Wednesday, that was Kevin Durant’s second...
Who’s the best player on the planet? The misconception about the “All-Star Break” is that it signifies the midway point of the NBA season. In reality it is only the official, unofficial (if that makes sense) half way point of the season. By the time the All-Star game is played most NBA teams would have played between 52-55 games in a 82 game season. It doesn’t take...
How was your Tuesday night? Not as good as Floyd Mayweather’s. Money decided to head down to the Staples Center for some NBA action between the Clippers and Thunder and obviously landed courtside seats to take in the action.
He placed a few casual bets last night to make the game a little more excited, since apparently Blake Griffin, Kevin Durant and Russell Westbrook just isn’t...
What’s an NBA player to do away with a few days off before facing a Los Angeles opponent? Party, of course. After Sunday’s OT loss to the Nuggets, Thunder teammates, Kevin Durant & Russell Westbrook touched down in LA and hit up GreyStone Manor in West Hollywood:
Kevin Durant: Prettyyyyy, prettyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy, pretty good at basketball.
On Tuesday night at Staples Center, the NBA's leading scorer dropped 32 points on the Clippers in the Thunder's 109-97 win. 24 of Durant's 32 points came in the second half, with two of those 24 coming on this awesome dunk over Lamar Odom:
Nice crossover on Matt Barnes, too.

LOS ANGELES (AP) -- Coming off a loss two nights earlier in Denver, the Oklahoma City Thunder were more interested in bouncing back with a win than making any statements against the Clippers.
Kevin Durant scored 32 points, Russell Westbrook added 26 and the Thunder won 109-97 on Tuesday night in a matchup of teams with the two best records in the NBA.
"We've got 82 games...
