Russell Westbrook debuted his signature shoe the “Why Not Zer0.1” in LA

Published

On Wednesday night Russell Westbrook debuted his signature shoe the Why Not Zer0.1 against the Los Angeles Lakers. For Westbrook, this is just one of the rewards after he became the MVP of the NBA last year.

The Why Not Zer0.1 was “crafted for the dynamic and personality of the reigning MVP and fashion king. It features a fused mesh upper, smooth vamp cover, full-length Zoom Air unit and compression-molded pylon foam piece engineered for flight.”

The on-court debut is a PE version of the “Mirror Image” colorway. This is a style that helps display Westbrook’s desire to tell personal stories through colorways. On the left shoe there is cut out images to represent Michael Jordan and on the right the images represent Westbrook.

Now Westbrook is a step even closer to gaining popularity in terms of the fans. He joins other great players that have have been blessed with getting their own shoe like Kevin Durant, LeBron James, and Michael Jordan.

Westbrook has earned this right to get his own shoe. Coming out of high school he was not heavily recruited and it took midway through his sophomore year for him to gain recognition in draft circles. Now he is the leader of the OKC Thunder and their franchise player.

Westbrook was wearing a “Mirror Image” PE version of his shoes. A similar colorway is releasing in limited quantities on Jan. 15th. The “2-Way” colorway releases February 15th

Westbrook had 20 points, 12 assists and six rebounds in the debut of his sneakers against the Los Angeles Lakers. The Oklahoma City Thunder won the game with a score of 133-96.

The Lakers are also interested in signing Kawhi Leonard in the summer of 2019.

Dwayne Wade and Lebron James played their final game against each other in the Staple Center on Monday night.

This is a bitter-sweet moment that both players have been dreading since Wade announced that this would be he would be retiring at the end of the year.

James spoke to ESPN about the impact that Wade had on his career. “Obviously, without D-Wade in my career, I wouldn’t be sitting here with this résumé that I have,” said James. “Individually, I think I would still be doing my thing individually, but as far as me accomplishing the team goals that truly mean most to me? Twenty-seven wins in a row. Four straight Finals. Two back-to-back championships. It goes without saying. I wouldn’t be able to accomplish it without him.”

Wade had a chance to send the game into overtime, but Lebron was able to force him into a bad shot from the arch.

“He knew my move at the end that stopped me from getting to my shot,” Wade said. “That’s how well we know each other, man. Just two competitors who enjoy the game of basketball, who love each other and love competing. So I’m glad that in my 16 years that we were on the court together, we was in this game, we’ve made a big impact on and off the court.”

It was clearly tough for both players and great moment to witness.
