NBA TV commentators didn’t know what to make of Russell Westbrook's Game 2 outfit

New, comments

By now, everyone knows Russell Westbrook dresses up in outlandish outfits for pretty much every game. Game 2 on Wednesday was no different, as he strolled through Oracle Arena in a leather jacket and a plain shirt that had a huge hole in it.

Westbrook has no interest in dressing up everybody else; he seems more interested in standing out from the crowd ... and promoting his love of Slayer.
