Reigning MVP Russell Westbrook visited Guangzhou, Shanghai and Taipei last week where he inspired fans and athletes alike with his “Why Not?” approach to basketball and #fashion.
More than 2,600 fans greeted Westbrook when he arrived at the #jordan Summer League City Finals in Guangzhou, China, for the first stop of his Flight Tour. After being celebrated for his achievements last season, Westbrook addressed the crowd with a special “commit to win” message.“Always be confident. Never fear sacrifice. Every game, every minute, just focus, go for it and do your best," said Westbrook.
Over the course of two days in Shanghai, Westbrook wowed with his footwear — all eyes were on him as he entered the grand opening of Shanghai’s first Jordan-only store in the Rosso Corsa Air #jordan XXXII — and unveiled a locally inspired “Sky Hai” art piece that was made by globally renowned artists the Zhou Brothers. He also kicked off the third year of the Jordan Wings program, where he worked with participants from Sichuan County and their mentees, and got involved in coaching at the #jordan Summer League National Finals, where the more than 2,500 audience members broke into a loud “MVP” chant before his departure.
