Russell Westbrook's younger brother Ray, graduated from the University of Central Oklahoma on Saturday. While one's college graduation is often memorable, Westbrook made it even more special for his brother by going on stage and handing Ray his diploma.

As Ray notes in his Instagram post, their parents couldn't attend his graduation due to flight problems. Luckily, his big brother was there to congratulate him on his big day.
