Russell Westbrook, one of the rising stars of the NBA, has been signed to Jordan Brand to a multi-year endorsement deal. Drafted fourth overall in the 2008 draft, the Oklahoma City Thunder point guard was named to the NBA All-Rookie First Team in 2009, and the NBA All-Star team in the past two seasons. During the 2011 – 2012 regular season, he averaged 23.6 points per game, 5.5 assists and 4.65 rebounds, leading the Thunder to the NBA finals. Later that summer, Westbrook was in London as a member of the USA Men’s National Basketball Team, highlighted by a 21-point performance in a game against Nigeria. Westbrook’s electric style of play makes him a suitable addition to Jordan Brand. In the words of Michael Jordan, “Russell’s style, both on and off the court, combined with his love and dedication to the game make him a perfect fit for the Jordan Brand.  We love the drive and passion for basketball that Russell brings.”
