Westbrook, the Oklahoma City Thunder point guard, took the honor at the inaugural NBA Awards show - defeating fellow finalists Kawhi Leonard of the San Antonio Spurs and James Harden of the Houston Rockets - after becoming the second player in history to average a triple double for a full season.
"Huge congrats to Russell Westbrook on MVP, that boy went out there and was a created player on 2k all year, F-kin balled out", he wrote. The most interesting part was, obviously, to see who wins the MVP award.
On Monday night, Russell Westbrook took home the regular-season MVP award.
"I'm so indebted to all of you for the prayers, support, text messages, calls, cards, CD's ...", Williams said in his acceptance speech.
Westbrook's MVP has drawn congratulations from all online corners. "I was the one who taught you to dribble, to shoot hoops, you know, and I remember the first time you beat me at basketball and I was very upset, and. if you remember correctly, you said, 'You just have to shake it off, ' and I got an idea".
But perhaps the most notable note of congrats came from Durant, Westbrook's longtime former teammate, whose departure for the Golden State Warriors in free agency last summer seemed to ignite seasonlong hard feelings with Westbrook. Williams was given a blazer with the colorful patterns Sager used to wear on the sidelines. In case you missed it, she gave birth to their first child in May, a son named Noah Russell Westbrook. "You guys are my brothers for life". "You've blessed me with a lovely son that I'm so thankful for". "I'm so happy for you. So, essentially, we have each other to thank for these careers".
