Say what you will about his style of play or ability to lead a team, but last night Russell Westbrook gave us a glimpse of the kind of person he is by giving his game-worn shoes to a Thunder fan after Wednesday's game.
His generosity added to what was already a night to remember at the Barclays Center, as Westbrook passed former Nets great Jason Kidd for third place all time in triple-doubles
Check out these highlights to see how he racked up his mind-blowing line of 21 points, 17 assists and 15 rebounds:
Giving away his game sneakers after games isn't something new for Westbrook, as he's already done it a few times this season. In an interview last week, he explained that the reason he gives his shoes away, gives high-fives and signs autographs is to make sure that he uses his platform to give young fans an experience that they will never forget and to help inspire the next generation of basketball fans and players.
Even if that kid doesn't go on to the NBA, or college ball, he will surely never forget the kindness that Westbrook showed him.
