Russell Westbrook has added another award to his 2017 résumé — Sports Illustrated’s “Most Fashionable Athlete.”

Westbrook — number two on last year’s list — is well known for his unique taste in fashion. Whether it be animal print, mismatching camouflage, a photographer’s vest, or something else he cooks up, his in-your-face wardrobe is nearly as memorable as his ability on the hardwood. Coming off of a 2016-17 season that saw him average a triple-double and win league MVP, it’s only right he continue his recent string of award-winning ways off the court.

While his choice in attire may be too expensive for the typical fan to replicate, he told SI:

“I wear a combination of everything. I go with what I’m feeling and with what looks good, regardless of how much it is. I want to show people across the world that you don’t always have to wear high-end. Whatever it is, you can still be fashionable.”

The top 10 of this year’s list broke down as follows:

  1. Russell Westbrook
  2. Victor Cruz
  3. Serena Williams
  4. Roger Federer
  5. LeBron James
  6. Henrik Lundqvist
  7. Dwyane Wade
  8. Lewis Hamilton
  9. Andre Iguodala
  10. Maria Sharapova
