Russell Westbrook Is All In For Oklahoma This Summer | Video and Photos

Russell Westbrook basketball campsIts been a busy month of July for Oklahoma City Thunder superstar Russell Westbrook, particularly in the state of Oklahoma. Though the 2017 NBA MVP spends much of his summer in his native Los Angeles, the 29-year-old has been extremely active throughout his adopted second home during the offseason of 2018.

Westbrook began the month by hosting the “Summer Hype House Party” at Lake Arcadia, located in the OKC suburb of Edmond, the city in which Westbrook resides during the hoops season. Highlights of the gala included a performance by Nas, as well as the sight of Thunder free agent Paul George celebrating his plans to re-sign with the team.

In the days since the rager at Lake Arcadia, Westbrook took park in his annual “Russell Westbrook Why Not? Basketball Camps,” with events taking place at Tulsa’s Bishop Kelley High School and OKC’s Solid Rock Basketball complex (photos below).

The Solid Rock center sits 13 miles north of Chesapeake Energy Arena and six miles north of the Thunder practice facility. 

In addition to Russell’s Oklahoma focused offseason efforts, his wife Nina opened The Little Ark boutique, in the OKC suburb of Nichols Hills.  Located seven miles north of the Thunder’s downtown home arena, the store focuses on gifts and décor, while also offering family centered classes and events. The below photo was gathered during the store’s opening.

Beginning with the upcoming 2018-2019 season, Westbrook will take the court in the first year of his restructured five-year/$205 million contract.  With this being the case, the 2018 assists leader is likely to be a fixture in the Oklahoma community, for many years to come.
