Over the course of his career, Russell Westbrook has always played with a relentless aggression. Well, it also appears the All-Star guard shows no mercy to children as well.
As Westbrook prepares for the first season of his NBA career outside of Oklahoma City, the former MVP spent time with kids at his basketball camp.
While Westbrook is certainly helping kids develop their games on the court, he’s also trying to make them learn how tough it is to defend a player of his caliber.
Video surfaced from Westbrook’s camp this week, showing him make an easy layup against his defender. Then, the newest member of the Houston Rockets nearly took out one of the kids at the camp as he drove to the rim.

The kid that fell turned out to be more than okay. He actually won the game of knockout, winning his entire team a pair of new sneakers.
It’s nice to see Westbrook enjoying his summer after undergoing a rough offseason in OKC.
