Russell Westbrook has been around the NBA since 2008 when he was drafted by the Seattle Supersonics. Being in the league for 14 years entails that Westbrook has played long enough to earn major dollars in his bank.
No matter what people say about him, "Brodie" will always be a superstar that teams will pay big for his services. His off-the-court earnings have added to his net worth today as well.
With that said, let's take a look at some of the endorsements that have been added to Russell Westbrook's net worth today.
Russell Westbrook's Career Earnings
Russell Westbrook is the 11th highest-paid athlete in the world with a net worth of $79.2 million in 2022, Forbes reported. According to Celebrity Net Worth, Westbrook's total accumulated net worth throughout the years now stands at $200 million. Given that he's been a superstar for a long time, brands were surely going to take notice of "Brodie".
Russell Westbrook earns around $35 million from endorsements alone. He signed a 10-year contract with Jordan in 2017, making him the player with the highest salary for the brand. According to Essentially Sports, Westbrook came out with his signature shoe for Jordan a year later. Additionally, he represents True Religion Apparel, Samsung Electronics, Six Star Pro Nutrition, and PepsiCo.
There isn't any exact information on how much Westbrook makes from his other endorsements. Aside from his off-the-court deals, he also made some investments to add up to his bank account. He has invested in Triller, Flow, Tulco, Tiger Global, Genies, Heal, Luvo, Health House, Mason, Pizzana, and Varo Bank through Russell Westbrook Enterprises.
Interestingly, "Brodie" even has his own clothing line called "Honor the Gift", which also earns him some extra income. But what really takes up the majority of his net worth is his salary earnings from the NBA. Westbrook and the OKC Thunder agreed to one of the biggest NBA contracts in 2017. It was a five-year deal worth $205 million.
He is currently the league's fourth-highest earner. He made $41,358,814 in the NBA during the 2020–2021 season. During the 2021–2022 NBA Season, he will make $44,211,146. He chose to exercise his $47,063,478 player option for the 2022–2023 season, following which he will be eligible for free agency.
After performing poorly last season, many assumed that Westbrook's value as a player would decrease. However, "Brodie" has backed up his game this season when he finally embraced his role on the bench.
He may not be playing like the superstar he once was, but Westbrook is playing efficient basketball. With that said, we can expect the big bucks to come to his bank account in his next contract.
