New Los Angeles Lakers star Russell Westbrook seems to be enjoying his new life. Recently, the former Oklahoma City Thunder star attended a fashion event. At the event, the 32-year-old, who is very interested in fashion, wore a white skirt and a white top. However, this move was met with mixed reactions.

While many appreciated Westbrook’s bold look, some others trolled him for the same. The veteran NBA player has always been fearless in the way he dresses, and the Thom Brown Spring 2022 show showed why. On the other hand, Kwame Brown was among those who did not appreciate Westbrook’s look. He, along with many others, trolled him for the same, to which the Lakers guard has now responded.

Reacting to Westbrook’s appearance at the show, former NBA player Kwame Brown did not approve of the look. He trolled when people wear absurd outfits, and compared it to what Westbrook recently wore. He also said “This ain’t his first time,” and “This ni*ga been wearing dresses and weird ass shit,” while addressing the same. Brown lashed out that no matter how big a star is, he doesn’t approve of someone walking on the streets in a dress.

In an indirect dig at his trolls and Kwame Brown, Russell Westbrook has tweeted a cryptic message. It was a small, yet apt reply to everyone who has bashed the Lakers guard over the past few days. He posted an image of him dressed up in a flashy outfit, and captioned it “I never fold under mental pressure – NH NIP.” With this reply, Westbrook perhaps hopes to end the whole debacle.
