Westbrook captures MVP honor

Last night, National Basketball Association superstar and Jordan Brand athlete, Russell Westbrook, was named the 2016-17 National Basketball Association regular season MVP.

In case you missed it, she gave birth to their first child in May, a son named Noah Russell Westbrook.

On Monday night Westbrook, the Oklahoma City Thunder star, took home the Maurice Podoloff Trophy, earning him the right to be called the league's most valuable player for the 2016-17 National Basketball Association season.

RUSSELL Westbrook got plenty of congratulatory messages and greetings after capping his historic season with an MVP award on Monday (Tuesday, Manila time) in the NBA Awards show in NY.

Former Thunder assistant coach Monty Williams was given the SagerStrong Award for the strength he showed after his wife was killed in a auto crash in Oklahoma City. The Thunder star beat out James Harden and Kawhi Leonard for the honor, getting 69 out of a possible 101 first-place votes. "You guys sacrificed everything", he said about his parents Shannon Horton and Russell Westbrook Sr. I'm truly blessed to have you as my mother. I mean it seems like they should have been that awesome with both those guys, but then again maybe they both needed to go on their own ways to be awesome.

"Oscar, guys like him, Magic Johnson, those guys, obviously I wasn't able to see those guys play, but just to look back at history and see the things that they did, it's something that I looked up to as a kid", Westbrook said.




"It was an wonderful season for me but without these guys none of it would have been possible".

I found out the real victor couldn't make it but they needed someone to fill the slot.

James Harden had the best offensive season of all time.

"I'm thankful for the opportunity to go out there and do what I love everyday", he said.

On stage at the inaugural NBA Awards show, Westbrook delivered an emotional speech, bringing his team mates on stage and thanked everyone from them to his family. Reports claimed the Oklahoma City Thunder will come up with a massive contract extension in order to keep their MVP on the team.
