Nike Zoom Hyperfuse Russell Westbrook PE

With the amazing things Kevin Durant does on the court, sometimes the play of Oklahoma City point guard Russell Westbrook is overshadowed. Take last night's game against the Portland Trailblazers for example. Kevin Durant drops 8 of his 34 points in the final 5 minutes of the game to help seal the deal for the Thunder. Headlines across the country pick up on how Durant closed the game. Completely justified, but what about Russell Westbrook? On the night, he racked up 36 points, 7 rebounds, 7 assists, 3 steals and 2 blocks. Can Russell be the next name added to that cluster of point guards vying for the league's best? Why not?

To fill up that stat sheet last night, Westbrook took the court wearing a player exclusive colorway of the Nike Zoom Hyperfuse. Westbrook's PE is white-based, with orange working the laces and Swoosh. Yellow turns up on the inner liner, while photo blue does the job on the tongue and outsole. Russell's new logo featuring his "Why Not?" catchphrase appears in orange on the ankle. Last, but certainly not least, a salute to fallen best friend and teammate Khelcey "KB3" Barrs is on the tongue.

How do you think Russell's PE stacks up against KD's?
