Kevin Durant posts congratulations to Russell Westbrook on MVP win

His appeal is global, but Russell Westbrook is a local phenomenon, too.

An emotional Russell Westbrook has been crowned the NBA's MVP in NY after a record-breaking season.

Westbrook was a man among boys all year, on his way to averaging a triple double and breaking Oscar Robertson's record for most triple doubles in a season with 42. "You guys have been riding with me through the good games, the bad games, always there lifting me up, and I'm just so thankful for all the fans there, so thank you guys".

It made me think at the time, Westbrook relished the chance to be out from under Durant's shadow. "I was the one who taught you to dribble.and I remember the first time you beat me at basketball and I was very upset".

Curry did not receive a single first-place or second-place vote. Myers, who played for the Bruins from 1994-97, has been general manager for the Golden State Warriors since April 2012.

As his speech continued, Westbrook also thanked the media, a select group of voters responsible for him winning the award.

Its founding was meant to help the poor, the sick, the needy, the disabled children, some elderly women, particularly pregnant women.

Westbrook had a historic season this year following the departure of fellow star Kevin Durant to the Warriors. You said, 'You just have to shake it off.' And I got an idea. The common draft era began in 1966. "The Greek Freak" Giannis Antetokounmpo of the Milwaukee Bucks picked up the Most Improved Player Award.

Westbrook defeated fellow finalists James Harden of Houston and Kawhi Leonard of San Antonio to claim the season MVP award for the first time in ceremonies at NY. His 3 point shooting was a joy to watch!

The best defensive player of the season was forward "Golden State" Draymond green.
