From day one, the Thunder have made it their mission to be entrenched in the community.

As Sam Presti likes to say, they're a local team that plays nationally.

And, yesterday they proved that again at a moment's notice.

The Thunder all got on a bus and headed to the hospital to bring gift baskets and joy to some of the youngsters and their families affected by Saturday's tragedy in Stillwater.

The team spent time taking pictures, joking around with everyone and even gave some jerseys to the kiddos.

The team had something planned but felt visiting the victims was much more important.

"We had something scheduled. We canceled it. As a team, we thought it would be great for us to go over and see a few kids and keep their spirits high and let them know that we care about them and their lives, as well," Russell Westbrook said. "To see their faces and see them smile - it's just a blessing. I think, for their families, parents and grandparents all in there, all see them smile and enjoy their time in a hospital. Nobody wants to be in a hospital. It was a blessing for me and a blessing for the other guys, as well."
