Watch Russell Westbrook's Emotional NBA MVP Acceptance Speech

LeBron James Cavaliers 2016-17

An emotional Westbrook invited his teammates onto the stage at the NBA Awards night at Basketball City in Manhattan, New York.

Golden State's Draymond Green won the Defensive Player of the Year.

"Ah, Russell, it's Taylor".

While accepting his award for the NBA's Most Valuable Player, Oklahoma City Thunder star Russell Westbrook teared up when he thanked his family for their love and support.

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.

Durant also shouted out Rookie of the Year Malcolm Brogdon, Most Improved Player Giannis Antetokounmpo, Sixth Man of the Year Eric Gordon, Coach of the Year Mike D'Antoni and MVP runner-up and former Thunder teammate James Harden in his note.




So we're not sure what this movie is exactly going to focus on, but we're guessing it's about Durant's backlash he received following his move from Oklahoma City to Golden State. I'm truly blessed to have you as my mother. "I remember the first time you beat me at basketball and I was very upset and you said, if you remember correctly, you said, 'You just have to "Shake it Off"'. You guys sacrificed everything", he said about his parents Shannon Horton and Russell Westbrook Sr.

"I think it's an example for guys that are told they are too short, they are not athletic enough, they are not real point guards, they are not real shooting guards", Brogdon said. "I can't do this myself so I appreciate them". No problem. Other local awards are predicated on if you pay for a nomination you have a chance.

James Harden had the best offensive season of all time.

The Rockets have been well represented so far in the NBA Awards Show.

"I never thought I would be in NY and have to thank the sports writers for Coach of the Year", D'Antoni said when he accepted his award at Basketball City. But we're here to talk about one team and one team only: the Oklahoma City Thunder.
