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.
Moreover, I’m told, he left the room virtually spotless.

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.
Spoke to Russ Westbrook. Confirmed he left a generous tip & thank you letter to housekeepers in the bubble. He didnt disclose the amount
“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”

There were stories in which random people portrayed Westbrook as a great person off-the-court, which isn’t the first time he did something similar. Other Twitter users started sharing their experiences interacting with Westbrook on random occasions in which he showcased his generosity. On top of that, he was also extremely approachable, which is not the case with most NBA players, especially big-time stars like Westbrook
I worked as a server in OKC at a restaurant he frequented for his first 3-4 seasons; can confirm he is an incredibly nice person off the court. He went out of his way to always tip well, learned our names, and dapped every server/hostess/bus boy up. He’s royalty in OKC forever.
