Russell Westbrook's commercial for Jordan Brand is a pretty obvious shot at Kevin Durant.

When Kevin Durant made the decision to leave Oklahoma City for Golden State, it was clear that his relationship with Russell Westbrook would never be the same. It doesn't look like his former teammate is shying away from throwing shade his way.

Friday, Jordan Brand released a new 30-second advertisement featuring Westbrook running down a runway - implying that he's ready for liftoff. The tag line? "Some run, some make runways." It's clearly a subtle shot at Durant for "running" away from Oklahoma City for a better team.

The Warriors and the Thunder are set to meet for the first time since Durant's switch on Thursday, November 3.
