How to vote for Russell Westbrook for NBA Community Assist Award originally appeared on NBC Sports Washington

Russell Westbrook was named one of 10 nominees for the annual NBA Community Assist Award on Tuesday, and the local D.C. sports contingent wants you to know how to vote for one of the most giving athletes around. 

Fans can vote on Twitter by tagging Westbrook and using the hashtag #NBACommunityAssist or through Jebbit from now until June 19. 

Washington Football Team defensive tackle Daron Payne was among those to send a message of support.

"What's up it's Daron Payne, let's all help Russell Westbrook win the community assists award," Payne said. 

The District's fellow professional hoopers with the Mystics were first in showing their support for their Monumental friends.

The Nationals made sure to show their support posting "LET'S GO RUSS" while making sure to point out that a simple retweet counts for two votes (one from the Nationals, and one from the retweeter) as they were diligent in tagging Westbrook and using the appropriate hashtag. Take notes, fellow Westbrook fans - that's how you get it done.

With how much good Westbrook does for the community here and in his hometown of Los Angeles, it's a no-brainer why there's been so much support from the professional sports teams around the nation's capital.

If the outpouring gives Westbrook the second NBA Community Assist Award of his career, he'll be the third Wizard in the last six years to receive the honor. John Wall won in the 2015-16 season and Westbrook's backcourt mate Bradley Beal won it in 2018-19.
