Watch: Westbrook in Tears While Accepting the MVP Award
All of the finalists were deserving to win the MVP award.
James Harden and Kawhi Leonard are both worthy competitors but tonight the award went to the man who carried his team all by himself. Averaging 31.6 points, 10.7 rebounds and 10.4 assists, Mr Triple Double could also be deserving to win the most improved player as he took on the challenge of filling up the big gap that was left behind by Kevin Durant.
Russel Westbrook was a player that gave it all he got on the court. His intensity is immeasurable and his athleticism and skills are that of an MVP.
Russel Westbrook is now the man of OKC and will continue to be the man for years.
Watch emotional Westbrook as he accepts the MVP award.
