Draymond Green was named the Defensive Player of the Year.
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.
"It was an fantastic season for me but without these guys none of it would have been possible".
"I never thought I would be able to say that I broke Oscar Robertson's record, and that's just a true blessing". So essentially we have each other to thank for these careers. "I want to give a special thanks to all the fans in Oklahoma City". I can only imagine a tweet is coming, just as soon as he's done celebrating his MVP win. "You guys have been riding with me through good games and bad games and have always been lifting me up". Sending you the biggest hug ever. "You guys are my brothers for life", Westbrook told his teammates who stood behind him on the stage as he made his acceptance speech.
Earlier this month, the Golden State Warriors were named the 2017 National Basketball Association champions, granting star-studded player Kevin Durant MVP.
On Tuesday, Durant took to his YouTube channel to share some thoughts on the National Basketball Association awards announced last night, and he was sure to include a shoutout to Westbrook. "I talk with them and hang with them every time I'm there". "I can't do this all by myself so I appreciate them".
He also won the Game Winner of the Year award, another fans' choice award, for his winning 36-foot jumper to defeat Denver, 106-105, at the buzzer. He was the first to average a triple double on the season in 45 years.
