NBA star Russell Westbrook is known for his high-stepping moves on the court just as much as his bold fashion sense off the court. Its no wonder he is covering the new April/May issue of EBONY Magazine.

“Big thanks to @ebonymagazine for putting this kid from LA on the cover!!! I have been getting this magazine since I was a kid and now I am on the cover…crazy!!!,” said Westbrook on social media.

Inside, the 28-year-old Long Beach, CA native opens up about family, fatherhood and his future. Watch Westbrook’s behind-the-scenes fashion spread below orchestrated by EBONY‘s Creative Director Pedro Vega and EBONY‘s Fashion and Beauty Director, Ayoca Lucas.
