Oh hey, Tay.

Oklahoma City Thunder point guard Russell Westbrook was named the NBA’s Most Valuable Player at the first-ever NBA Awards on Monday (June 26), and it caught the attention of one of the world’s most famous pop stars.

Westbrook is a huge Taylor Swift stan. As Spin points out, he has uploaded videos of himself singing along to some of Swift’s biggest tunes in his car and at her concerts, like “Bad Blood” and “We Are Never Getting Back Together.”

Not only did he receive a huge honor from the NBA, but the pop star recorded a special video message to congratulate him – highly uncharacteristic of the singer.

Swift concocted some tedious fake story about how they’ve helped each other throughout their illustrious careers (they’ve actually never met), which is just Swift’s snarky humor bubbling to the surface, but nonetheless it’s quite a sweet gift.
