Russell Westbrook is the cover athlete for NBA Live 16, the upcoming installment from the long-running NBA Live video-game series from EA Sports.

Unfortunately he's not debuted any upcoming footwear on the cover, but he's representing for Jordan Brand regardless with the Air Jordan XX9 on-feet. Included in EA Sports's press package with the announcement of Westbrook's cover boy status is some amusing imagery from his motion capture session, wherein he donned tons of tiny balls while showing off his moves.

The clip above shows off some of NBA Live 16's sneaker graphics, which have a lot to aspire to given how high NBA 2K is aiming to set the bar with its next game.
