The Oklahoma City Thunder star was honored at the very first NBA Awards show that took place the other night in New York City. Westbrook had an incredible season, to say the least pulling off 42 triple-doubles during the season.
During his speech, Mr. Westbrook thanked the Oklahoma City Thunder organization, his teammates, the media and his family. He teared up when speaking to his parents and his brother, also addressing his wife in the process. He also brought up some of his teammates on stage behind him and thanked them for helping him in getting the hardware. Check out the clip below and stay tuned for much more from the NBA coming soon.
