Russell Westbrook played in his first game with the Rockets on Thursday night, and in doing so, he showed off a brand-new haircut.
And, well, it was something, that’s for sure.
Westbrook usually sports a very short haircut with a skin fade on the sides, but now that he’s on a new team, well, let’s just say he has something very different. And the memes that followed were hilarious.

Did Russ get his hairstyle inspiration from Mr Lunt from Veggietales? pic.twitter.com/m3hgwYcrMV

Everytime I see Westbrook's hair I think of a depressed version of this: pic.twitter.com/WPyRZKVMn4

We’re not even sure what to call that look, but we do know it was unique to Westbrook as we’ve never seen it before.
