RUSSELL WESTBROOK LEFT A GENEROUS tip and a thank you note for the housekeepers working in the bubble


Many NBA players are great and down to earth people who showcase their generosity in different ways on numerous occasions. The most recent story about their generosity comes from NBA superstar Russell Westbrook who, according to various sources, left a large tip for all the housekeepers at the Grand Floridian where the team stayed during their time in the bubble.

The Houston Rockets stayed at the hotel for almost two months, which was enough for Westbrook to recognize all the effort these workers had to go through, especially considering all the circumstances with Covid-19. At first, Westbrook's act was believed to be a rumor, but it was confirmed he also left a thank you note for their service.

They took great care of us. Took the time and energy to do their job at a high level. That was the right thing. I like to do the right thing"
