Russell Westbrook, in a 1-on-1 interview with Thunder Rumblings, spoke about his recent partnership with Jordan Brand. When asked about his new boss, Westbrook said #23 is very involved in handpicking his endorsers, even said he reached out personally to Russ, who unfortunately didn’t get a chance to “holler at him”:
Q: Did he ever reach out to you personally?
A: Nah, not before the process. A little bit (afterward). I didn’t get a chance to holler at him though. But he tried to reach out.
Q: Wait a second. If Michael Jordan calls, you take his call.
A: (Laughs). I didn’t know. I didn’t know what it was, who was calling.
