You’ll Love Russell Westbrook for What he did for an OKC Single Mother
Without having to share the spotlight with an injury-plagued Kevin Durant throughout the 2014-15 NBA Season, Russell Westbrook has been showing his worth with 11 triple doubles and a solid place in the MVP discussion. Even though the critics still keep calling him out on his supposed selfishness, there is nothing selfish about what he did for this single mother in Oklahoma City.
Krestin Gonzales became pregnant at only 14 years old, forcing her to become an adult much sooner than she should have. Even though Sunbeam Family Services helped take care of her two boys, 4-year old Matthew and 2-year old Adam, having a car that wouldn’t start didn’t help much. With a KIA that he won as the All-Star Game MVP, Russell was there to throw an assist.
“It’s so touching and so amazing knowing that there are people out there willing to help the ones that are in need,” Gonzalez said.
“She has such a good heart,” said Erin Engelke, Sunbeam’s Chief External Relations Officer. “She’s so worthy and so humble. She did not see this coming. We had orchestrated it so that it could be a true surprise and it was for her.”
