RUSSELL WESTBROOK SIGNS UNDERWEAR DEAL WITH KINGS & JAXS
It didn’t take long for Russell Westbrook to capture the fashion headlines once returning to the hardwood. His Zebra-printed jacket quickly dominated the NBA style conversation. Now the NBA baller and sartorial star is focusing on a new fashion endeavor. In his latest gig, the Oklahoma City Thunder guard will be modeling underwear for Kings & Jaxs. Westbrook joins the roster of athletes-turned-underwear-models, including the likes of David Beckham, Cristiano Ronaldo, Rafael Nadal and Michael Jordan.
TMZ first reported the news, explaining:
Russell inked a huge deal with Kings & Jaxs that will require him to not only model the undies, but will also give him creative and design input.
The company also announced the new partnership via twitter:
