Russell Westbrook has revolutionized the point guard position since entering the NBA. Teams around the league have found themselves scrambling to try to stop his relentless attack to the basketball and his ability to pull up on the blink of the eye. His incredible abilities on the court have caught the attention of major endorses including leading basketball apparel line Brand Jordan. Westbrook had previously been apart of the Nike Family, but made the transition to Brand Jordan once a slot was open after Dwyane Wade parted ways.
The endorsement has now come full circle as he will be starring in the new Champs Sports advertising campaign promoting the Jordan Brand. Backed by T.I.’s ‘Go Get It’, ‘Game Starts Here’ Westbrook shows how Jordan has you covered head to toe this summer, both on the court and off. Russell is no stranger to fashion as he has been highly recognized for his style during post game interviews and as he enters the arena for games.
Look for Westbrook to land more endorsements during the NBA offseason and possibly be booked for Speaking Engagements and Celebrity Appearances.

Orlando loves basketball and the Magic love their community. On Thursday, Orlando Magic forward Tobias Harris and point guard Jameer Nelson participated in the Habitat for Humanity Orlando home build. Harris and Nelson were joined by Magic Community Ambassadors Nick Anderson and Bo Outlaw, along with 20 other Magic employees.
In the four years of the program, the Magic have sponsored five homes in the Stag Horn Villas section of Orlando.
In a statement, Habitat for Humanity Orlando Director of Development Lynn Ivanek said, “We are thankful for our ongoing partnership with the Orlando Magic. They understand the meaning of giving back and with their contribution of time, sweat and treasure they have made the dream of home ownership a reality for five deserving families.”
The Orlando Magic organization as a whole is very active in the community. In the 2012-13 season, Magic employees clocked in nearly 6,000 community service hours.
Harris, whom the Magic acquired in a trade with Milwaukee in late February, said he is finally starting to feel at home in Central Florida. In addition to being a big hit on the court for the Magic, he averaged 17.3 points and 8.5 rebounds in 27 games in Orlando. Tobias made it a point to volunteer for as much community work as possible. Harris got in a two-hour workout at the team’s headquarters on Thursday morning, and then headed over to the Habitat for Humanity event for some painting of porch columns and doorways. The future is looking bright for the Orlando Magic.
The 31-year-old NFL punter and Gay Rights Activist Chris Kluwe was picked up this Wednesday by the Oakland Raiders. Kluwe, who was released by the Minnesota Vikings on May 6, will step in for Pro Bowler Shane Lechler, who left Oakland for the Houston Texans via free agency.
Kluwe is the all-time Vikings leader in average yards per punt (44.4) and second all-time in total punt yards (27,683) and total punts (623). Kluwe is arguably the greatest punter in franchise history.
Kluwe is focused on punting, but he says his eye is also on Proposition 8 in California. Prop 8 was passed by voters in 2008 and governs that the state recognize only marriages between a man and a woman. The law’s legality was argued before the US Supreme Court in March, with a ruling expected in June, and Kluwe is optimistic about the likely repeal of the measure. If the measure is not repealed, however, he says it will be an issue of concern that will need to be addressed.
