Russell Westbrook got to play a role in helping a family in need

The news of Russell Westbrook's latest endeavor has been hopping around social media for the past 24 hours, and you can finally watch the full video above. Westbrook, MVP of the 2015 All-Star game, received a Kia SUV as part of his award. As we all know, Westbrook's mantra - Why Not? - is also the name of his charitable foundation. Westbrook's foundation, with the help of the Thunder organization, contacted the local Sunbeam Family Services organization to see if they could find a home for Westbrook's prize.

According to Nick Gallo and as you can see in the video above, they found what they were looking for:

Westbrook will likely always have to deal with the dichotomy between his on-court and off-court persona, and acts of kindness like this can often be seen in opposite lights. He may never dispel the idea that he's (fill in the blank), but perhaps he doesn't really care either way. At the end of the day, a hurting family got the help it needed, and sometimes that legacy is enough. After all, why not?
