Flashy or distasteful, Westbrook can light up the scoreboard and the press conference"

Lense-less glasses? Check.

Funky shoes? Check.

Wild shirt? Check.

Russell Westbrook has been as much of a sensation off the court as he has been on the court. With trendy looks following games, Westbrook has brought his youth and swag to the postgame conferences.

Night after night, he wears a different outfit  and shows it off to the press. Westbrook looks as comfortable as can be in gear that many would not have the guts to rock.

He wears his Thunder jersey for 48 minutes and then dramatically switches up the gear with style and grace. He does not hesitate to own it up.

Westbrook has even caused TNT analyst, Charles Barkley to give his opinion on Westbrook's outfits.

Not that Chuck trash talking is something new, but when an analyst is forced to talk about your numbers and your outfit, you know you are creating a splash. 

After the Thunder defeated the Los Angeles Lakers in Game 1 of the Conference Semifinals, Westbrook wore this: 

Westbrook claims he got the shit from Lacoste, but Barkley believes it was from TJ Maxx. Further, Barkley's twitter read that night, "Russell Westbrook dressed like a french tourist at the press conference."

Last night, he showed up with a purple floral shirt straight out of the 70's. Must admit, it looked a little more classy than the "French tourist" shirt but nonetheless, it caught people's attention. However, Kevin Durant proved to be better on the court and a better dresser off the court. 

By far, the worst outfit Westbrook has worn came during Game 4's press conference. Maybe, the gear reflects his performance on the floor because this look was as bad as his game. Westbrook shot 2-10 from the floor and scored only seven points in that game. 

Westbrook decided to wear teddy bears on his shirt, but that was not it. The kicks he rocked were worse.

Oh yes, he is wearing red pants and, wait, is that Felix the Cat on his right shoe? The stop sign seems a bit random, but maybe he is so fast off the court that he has to remind himself to take it easy around pedestrians. 

The Oklahoma City Thunder could care less how Westbrook dresses off court. All they know is that, when Russell Westbrook wears the Thunder jersey, he is one of the greatest young players in the NBA. The Thunder look forward to seeing Westbrook perform well in the Finals as they search for their first championship.

With those outfits though, the Thunder might look forward to laughing at Westbrook during the postgame press conferences.
