"I’ve got a lot of interests outside of basketball, and one of them is doing things I haven’t done before, like stepping into the shoes of a photographer and learning about what it’s all about," he wrote of the experience.

Fast-forward nine months, and the two aren't teammates any more, they haven't spoken since Durant departed for the Golden State Warriors, and only one of them is assuring the world they don't have beef.
And this is the outfit Westbrook chose to wear to their much-anticipated first meeting as opponents, on the road.

A freakin' photographer's bib.
Is this a shot at Durant? Or just a standard deposit in a long line of interesting fashion choices on Russ' part?
According to Westbrook, it's the latter.

Then again, this is the same guy that posted this the day Durant signed with the Warriors.
According to Sports Illustrated's Lee Jenkins, during Durant's Thunder days he and Westbrook adopted the term "cupcake" to describe anyone soft, which came from former teammate Kendrick Perkins.
At halftime, the Warriors lead Westbrook's Thunder, 68-43. Durant has 29 points on 11-of-17 shooting. After making his first two shots, Westbrook finished the half 1-of-10 from the field. He has 12 points and four turnovers.
