Watch Taylor Swift Re-Emerge to Congratulate NBA MVP Russell Westbrook
Jun 28 2017
James Harden finished second with 22 first place votes and 753 points total.
Westbrook led the National Basketball Association in scoring at 31.6 points per game and finished with per game averages of 10.7 rebounds and 10.4 assists.
Former Thunder assistant coach Monty Williams was given the SagerStrong Award for the strength he showed after his wife was killed in a vehicle crash in Oklahoma City.
Three years ago, Kevin Durant was overcome with emotion during his MVP acceptance speech, calling his mom "the real MVP". "I talk with them and hang with them every time I'm there".
Golden State forward Draymond Green was voted the Defensive Player of the Year, defeating co-finalists Leonard and French center Rudy Gobert of the Utah Jazz.
Westbrook also broke Robertson's record for most triple-doubles in a single season with 42, as the Thunder had a record of 33-9 when he had a triple-double and 14-26 when he did not have one. "Hopefully, I'll be around a couple more years". This is for all you guys and I am very thankful to have you guys in my corner.
Earlier this month, the Golden State Warriors were named the 2017 National Basketball Association champions, granting star-studded player Kevin Durant MVP. "These guys sacrifice so much for me throughout the year". He became the first National Basketball Association player named ROY not to be drafted in the first round, since the start of the common draft era in 1966. "Great organization", D'Antoni said of the Rockets' 55-win season.
The Thunder's Victor Oladipo won the fan award for the "Dunk of The Year". I check websites, local and national to make sure I provide myself with the best and safest way to enjoy a stream. He averaged 16.2 points to help fuel the Rockets' run to the surprising No. 3 seed in the Western Conference and edged former NBA Finals MVP Andre Iguodala of Golden State by 32 points. And he thanked a lot of them after winning the game's most-coveted individual award.
