  • Sources: Russell Westbrook inks 10-year extension with Jordan Brand

Now, after that memorable and historic season, Nick DePaula of ESPN brings word that Westbrook will be spending the next 10 years as "the face of the brand".

How might that impact his on-court future?

Williams and her husband-to-be, Reddit co-founded, Alexis Ohanian , made a decision to name their daughter after him. You have to check out link in bio for her incredible journey", she wrote.


DePaula reports this contract will be for on- and off-court shoes, noting in addition to the Air Jordans he wears during games there will be two off-court silhouettes - the Westbrook 0.1 and 0.2 - ready for unveiling.

The agreement with the popular shoe company is reportedly the most lucrative endorsement deal ever by any Jordan athlete. At 28-years-old, Westbrook is just hitting his prime years, making it very timely for the Jordan Brand to lock down the UCLA product. Thanks to Foucher's negotiating, the increased pay rate of his new deal retroactively applies to last season. The shoe is expected to highlight his flashy and unpredictable fashion lens, "unlike anything that Jordan Brand has done before", according to an industry source.

As Westbrook's on-court performance has been elevated to new levels, so has his off-court brand.

As for the delay in creating a signature model for the league MVP during the rise of his prime, there's a bit of a case study in place from the brand's recent history.

UCL to test Klopp's progress at Liverpool
Coutinho, meanwhile, has not played for the Reds at all this campaign after his attempts to force through a move to Barcelona . This is something that he retained for Liverpool's clash with Dortmund in the Europa League in 2016, seemingly paying off.


Other terms of the deal have not been made public as of posting time. The deal also includes a rare 'ambassador clause, ' which gives Westbrook appearance opportunities for the brand even after he retires in the National Basketball Association.
