Kevin Durant and Russell Westbrook’s on-court play has inspired plenty of young hoopers across the country. And now, their postgame attire has inspired a plot line in one of TV’s most popular shows.

OKC’s dynamic duo appeared on a scene of NBC’s Parks and Recreation on Thursday night, not as actors but rather cameo plot movers, with the duo shown talking to the media after a playoff game.

As the episode develops, it becomes clear that Aziz Ansari’s character, after viewing the presser on his computer, decides to tailor his new clothing line around the kind of stuff Durant and Westbrook commonly show up in after games. You know, the lenseless glasses and skinny tie look. No mention of Westbrook’s fishhook shirt though.

You can watch the show here. Westbrook and Durant show up around 18:25.

But it’s too bad the duo didn’t show up as actors on the show (something likely impossible to fit into the hectic NBA schedule).

Because we know the pair can hold their own an a Hollywood stage. Durant has experience playing the starring role (both on the court and the big screen) and Westbrook’s always good for some comic relief.
