Just when Dwyane Wade thought he had shut down the whole glasses thing, Russell Westbrook gets tabbed by GQ to “[pick] this season’s best frames.” Really.

And not just that, he took things to another level, deciding whether or not the frames should stay in or out (really), then recommending which NBA players should wear them. Some choice quotes:

“These can definitely be dressy or casual. Perfect for a business party.”

“You definitely have to have some sort of swag to throw these on.”

“Yeah, this is a smart look, Maybe wear this with a bow tie or something like that of that nature.”

“These remind me of the movie, Paid in Full. They’re versatile.”

Oh, and this is what he picked for Kevin Durant.

You aren’t going to believe this, but those glasses without lenses that Russell Westbrook doesn’t even need started out as just him messing around with dressing silly for fun.

From a recent ESPN LA radio interview, as transcribed by Sports Radio Interviews:

Are you mad that you didn’t copyright your look on wearing glasses without lenses in the postgame press conferences?

No I’m not mad about it. It’s a great look.

How did you start it?

I don’t know I’ve been wearing it for awhile and I just happened to wear it.

You wore it to goof around?

Yeah just goofing around wearing it just whenever and all the time. Not even when I dress up.

I know, I’m shocked too. This seemed like a really well thought out thing, to wear glasses without lenses, and not just something he threw on at home as a joke then decided to wear in front of millions of people.

But hey, a great look is a great look, no matter where it came from. Even if where it came from is from looking in an old junk drawer while cleaning the house and wearing some costume eyewear to make your friends laugh.
