Houston Rockets point guard Russell Westbrook wore navy blue and orange with pride for 11 years with the Oklahoma City Thunder. Now, as he’s set to make his return to Chesapeake Energy Arena on Thursday night, he is wearing those colors once again in a unique way.

As the All-Star guard warmed up before the game, he was spotted working out in a pair of Jordans with that familiar navy blue and orange.

It’s the perfect gesture for Westbrook to appreciate his time with the Thunder and show some love for the colors he used to wear on that same court for years. Oklahoma City holds a special place in Westbrook’s heart and it’s clear he still has a connection with those colors.

We can’t wait to see the ovation he receives from Oklahoma City’s fans when he is introduced to the crowd on Thursday night.
