With the much-anticipated meeting between Russell Westbrook and Kevin Durant going down Thursday night, you knew Westbrook was going to have something subtle to jab his former teammate. We’ll give Westbrook some points for creativity for how he arrived for the game in Oakland.

Westbrook made his way to the locker room from the team bus sporting a flashy photographer’s vest. Why is that notable? It wasn’t just to be funny (well, actually, maybe it was). It was pretty clearly a shot at Durant, who is known for having photography as a hobby.


Durant has made no secret of his love for life behind the lens. He even got a chance to shoot some shots from the sideline at the Super Bowl, which of course Westbrook has also used to have some fun behind Durant’s back…

Why you gotta pick on Durant’s hobby, Russell?
