Watch: Russell Westbrook's New Jordan Brand Ad Drops Ahead Of Thunder Season Opener

Russell Westbrook's new Jordan Brand ad is out, just in time for his season with the Oklahoma City Thunder to begin.

Westbrook and his Thunder are in Philadelphia for the season opener against the 76ers, which is set to tip-off momentarily. Ahead of the first game of what is truly the "Russell Westbrook era" in Oklahoma City, his newest Jordan Brand ad is out, and it is all about the explosive point guard's personality and individuality.

The ad features Westbrook, along with a number of others, dancing to Lil Uzi Vert's "I Do What I Want," a very appropriate song choice considering everything that went down with Westbrook and the Thunder this summer. After Kevin Durant left for Golden State, many expected Westbrook to do the same. Instead, he somewhat unexpectedly signed a long term deal with the Thunder, which is now definitively 'his' team. He does what he wants. His attire ahead of tonight's game tells you that.

Westbrook is an MVP favorite entering the season, and his Durant-less Thunder are one of the most interesting teams in the NBA. Debate over how the team will be has raged for months, and there doesn't seem to be a true consensus. The only thing that seems certain is that Westbrook is ready for a monster campaign.

The Thunder and Sixers tip off at 8:00 p.m. ET at Wells Fargo Center in Philadelphia.
