Paired with the new Air Jordan XX8, Russell Westbrook and the Oklahoma City Thunder sailed past the Brooklyn Nets last night at Barclays Center. While the 117-111 game ended quite close with just a six-point differential between winner and loser, Westbrook made his 25 points and nine assists look easy as he effortlessly finger-rolled his shots in. As for the Air Jordan XX8, its design hit all of the marks in support, speed, and strength. Westbrook even tried it on both as a high- and mid-cuff just to get the feel. It would be interesting to see how Kobe Bryant and his new Kobe 8 System will respond to the new Jordan when the Los Angeles Lakers take on the OKC tonight.
