Russell Westbrook showed up last night to OKC's much anticipated match up with Kevin Durant and the Golden State Warriors dressed as a photographer.
Well, a lot of folks concluded he was trolling KD, who is an amateur photographer.

Given Westbrook's history of taking the subtlest of shots at his former teammate, it seemed a good theory
However, Westbrook denied that was his intention in his post game interview.

As for the game ... KD outscored Westbrook 39-20 as the Warriors handed OKC their first loss of the year.
So if Westbrook was trolling, it didn't work.
Update: Durant responded to Westbrook's outfit in an interview with ESPN:
I don’t care about what nobody wear to the game. Who gives a shit? I don’t care what he wore," KD said.
