Scott Brooks on whether he'd adopt Russell Westbrook's style for a Thunder title: "No shot"

by Anthony Slater Published: April 24, 2013

Right toward the end of Scott Brooks’ usually tame and uneventful pregame media session, Royce Young of Daily Thunder threw a hypothetical question out at the Thunder coach.

It was basically along the lines of, “If the Thunder win the title, would Brooks let Russell Westbrook (a fashion aficionado in the strangest way) dress his coach for a week? Or even a day?”

Brooks pondered the inquiry for a split-second, before quickly amending the suggestion: “(Can you) take away his last outfit?” Brooks joked, referring to the Mr. T get-up (shown above) that Westbrook revealed in his postgame media session on Sunday.

But it wasn’t the sleeveless shirt that turned Brooks off. It was the shoes.

“I didn’t like the shoes,” Brooks said. “Did you see those shoes?”

But the question remained, would Brooks be open to the deal?

“No shot…no shot,” he said.
