Russell Westbrook is used to dunking on professional basketball players, so it’s going to be a trip watching him dunk on a bunch of teens on the upcoming episode of Nickelodeon’s Henry Danger.

Henry Danger follows the 13-year old Henry Hart (Jace Norman), a teen who moonlights as a crime-fighting sidekick to superhero Captain Man (Cooper Barnes). The Oklahoma City Thunder point guard will be making a guest-starring turn as Shawn, a “14-year old” who seems a lot older than he seems to be, and who joins Henry’s basketball team, after some coercing on part of Henry’s basketball coach.

“The coach steals my dog and he forces me to play for his team and I end up playing a lot better than the kids on the show,” Westbrook told EW of his role on the show. “I’m kind of an upbeat guy, and the kids that I work with kept me excited the whole time.”

In an exclusive clip from this Saturday’s episode, watch Westbrook trying to blend into a bunch of teenagers half his height.

Henry Danger airs Saturdays at 8 p.m. ET on Nickelodeon.
