It's that time of year for us to reflect on what we're thankful for and give back to those in need.
Athletes aren't any different. From Russell Westbrook to Cam Newton, Carmelo Anthony, Russell Wilson and more, sports' biggest stars are giving back this Thanksgiving in a major way.
Here's how those star athletes and others are feeding families for the holidays and more. Salute to them for giving back!
Due to the NBA's scheduling gods, Russell Westbrook was back to his L.A. roots, serving up these Thanksgiving dinners to many appreciative folks. Rapper Nipsey Hussle joined in, supporting the initiative from Russ's Why Not? Foundation.
The NFL MVP's annual Thanksgiving Jam fed more than 800 kids this year. Cam even led them in a #MannequinChallenge entry. Grand gesture.
Just like Cam Newton's Thanksgiving touchdown for the kids, Carmelo Anthony's huge assist helped provide 800 families with essentials for the holiday.
No need to "Fear the Beard" when he's hosting a Thanksgiving feast.
Easily the biggest and most important assist that John Wall recorded this season.
Russell Wilson didn't hand out turkeys, but he gave back the way he always does — by spending some time with kids at the Seattle Children's Hospital. And wife Ciara rolled with him. They have plenty to be thankful for with a baby on the way.
Tristan Thompson brought along his boo, Khloe Kardashian, for this turkey drive for The Land.
J.R. Smith joined his Cleveland Cavaliers teammate Tristan and brought his daughters to teach them the valuable lesson about giving back.
The Washington stars couldn't help but laugh while giving a turkey to a Dallas Cowboys fan at the team's turkey drive. Washington visits Dallas for a big game on Thanksgiving afternoon.
Donald Penn and his Oakland Raiders teammates gave back in a major way by feeding over 250 families. The squad has given Raider Nation plenty to be thankful for on the field, too, where the Black and Silver sport a surprising 8-2 record.
