Russell Westbrook gave a young Lakers fan the thrill of her life after Tuesday night’s game against the San Antonio Spurs. After beating San Antonio, Westbrook noticed a fan with a sign that said, “Brodie can I have your [shoes].”

Westbrook surprised the fan by saying yes. It happened in Los Angeles, so of course the cameras were rolling.

The girl’s reaction when he threw his kicks to her was absolutely priceless. Her dad posted about the epic event on social media.

“In her first NBA game and Lakers game with an OT win nothing could have been better for her. She literally kept repeating ‘I can’t believe this is real.’ I’m so proud of you for staying consistent and thankful for Brodie for being so generous and making this the best experience ever.”

Westbrook even replied in the comments, thanking the pair for supporting the team. What a night for this lucky kid!

The Staples Center faithful who didn’t go home with game-worn sneakers got a pretty good consolation prize. The Lakers and Spurs treated fans to a two-overtime thriller that L.A. won 125-121.
