As I turn on SportsCenter at 7:00 in the morning, highlights from the Lakers-Thunder game flash across the screen. When an interview with Russell Westbrook comes on, I almost laugh out loud at his glassless red plastic glasses and tight-fitting polo shirt covered in tiny fishhooks. What a joke! Athletes make millions every year, but dressing themselves like this definitely doesn’t show it! More »
