Russell Westbrook has been a beast this season.

The man notched his 11th triple-double on Sunday and has thrust himself into the NBA MVP conversation.

As great as he's been on the court, the Oklahoma City Thunder point guard is also doing some fantastic work off of it.

The team revealed Monday that Westbrook gave the Kia car he won for being named the 2015 All-Star Game MVP to single mother Kerstin Gonzales.

The Thunder provided more information from Westbrook on why he decided to do such a kind act:
