WATCH: Russell Westbrook gives young fan a life lesson during game

Bob Donnan-USA TODAY Sports

Show some respect. That’s the message Oklahoma City Thunder guard Russell Westbrook had for a young Denver Nuggets fan during Tuesday night’s game.

As Russ was attempting to save the ball out of bounds, he landed right in front of the stands. That’s when a youngster in Nuggets gear gave the former MVP a love tap to get Russ out of his way.

True to form, Westbrook was having none of it.

As you can see, Westbrook returned to the child. He had a few words to say before the two shook hands.

We can only imagine what Westbrook had to say to the youngster. But we’re pretty sure it was a life lesson about showing respect to your elders.

Well done, Russ.
