Russell Westbrook Honors His Late Best Friend At Heart Ball

westbrookhb2Russell Westbrook took part in the American Heart Association’s annual Oklahoma City Heart Ball on Saturday night to honor his childhood best friend, Khelcey Barrs III, who died unexpectedly of an enlarged heart. “He was my best friend growing up…it was just unfortunate this had to happen to him a couple years back, but I’m here today in his honor and hoping to give back,” said Westbrook donated a signed jersey among other items to be auctioned off. He wears a “KB3″ band on his wrist for every game, “Every night I go on the floor, it’s definitely for him.” The event’s fundraising goal was $640,000, which will support heart and stroke research, education and legislative advocacy.
