After a historic season filled with triple-doubles, Oklahoma City point guard Russell Westbrook was selected the NBA's Most Valuable Player on Monday night at the league's first-ever awards show in NY.

Westbrook averaged 31.6 points, 10.6 rebounds and 10.4 assists per game, becoming the first player since Robertson to average a triple double for a season.

The 6-foot-3 Westbrook led the Thunder to the playoffs, but was eliminated by the Houston Rockets in the first round. "I remember growing up, just being [at] home, playing the video games and stuff with my pops [father]. I couldn't thank everybody, but thanks, you guys, to everybody who helped me along the way", said Westbrook during an emotional acceptance speech, via ESPN.

Westbrook called the feeling unbelievable after accepting the trophy at the first annual National Basketball Association awards show on Monday night.

Brogdon's teammate Giannis Antetokounmpo won Most Improved Player.

The landmark case was taken up on Monday - two years to the day after America's top court legalised same-sex marriage nationwide. Runkles-Pearson said the Sweet Cakes by Melissa case, and others like it, are challenges to anti-discrimination laws.

Oklahoma City Thunder's superstar Russell Westbrook has a new honor to add to his name. This is for all you guys and I am very thankful to have you guys in my corner. In my opinion, he was very deserving of the award by the current National Basketball Association standards, but the real MVP of the league, is Lebron James. "It was obviously an fantastic season for me but without these guys and the rest of our guys that are not here, none of this would be possible".

"I told myself I wasn't going to cry", Westbrook said when looking at his parents. Then in May, she asked fans to check out Haim's latest song, "Want You Back". "I mean, James is a real good friend of mine".

He joined Hall of Famer Oscar Robertson as the only two players to average double figures in scoring, rebounding and assists for the season.

Golden State forward Draymond Green was announced as the best defensive player after being denied a second National Basketball Association title in three years.

One month later, Westbrook was named a finalist for the prestigious award along with Houston's James Harden and San Antonio's Kawhi Leonard. He's Golden State's best player and should earn more votes than Stephen Curry, who became the only unanimous MVP in 2016.
