Russell Westbrook’s relationship with Nike’s Jordan brand will continue for at least another decade. The Oklahoma City Thunder superstar point guard joined the Jordan brand back in 2013 signing a five-year contract. Westbrook officially signed an extension for another ten years.
Jordan has made him the face of the brand over the past few years. Westbrook’s recent MVP Award win has his popularity higher than ever. Considering Westbrook’s intensity on the court is very similar to Michael Jordan, it’s only fitting he represents the Jordan brand of the current generation of NBA stars.
The Thunder organization is hoping to sign Westbrook to an extension soon as well before his contract expires in 2019.
