After LeBron James and Kevin Durant went toe-to-toe in the 2017 NBA Finals, the best players on the Cleveland Cavaliers and Golden State Warriors are nearly certain to be in the mix for the award.

Westbrook made the 2016-17 season a memorable one, putting his name in National Basketball Association record books as only the second player ever, and first since Oscar Robertson in 1962, to average a triple-double.

Russell Westbrook got the recognition he deserves on Monday, by being named the 2016-17 NBA MVP after an historic season where he broke Oscar Robertson's triple-double record. Green averaged 7.9 rebounds, 2.0 steals and 1.4 blocks per game for the Warriors during a championship season, on top of 10.2 points and 7.0 assists. Houston is James Harden's. "I am humbled to be part of it".

He also thanked the San Antonio Spurs and the New Orleans Pelicans for their support throughout his career.

Durant forgot to congratulate Sixth Man of the Year victor Eric Gordon, so he jumped back in with a follow-up comment. He was the obvious best example of instant offense off anyone's bench, averaging 16.2 for the high-powered, high-octane Rockets. The guy everyone guns to beat next season.

"I got my first MVP award before my first ring, too". Instead of Dario Saric or big man Joel Embiid winning the NBA's Rookie of the Year award, it went to the Milwaukee Bucks' Malcolm Brogdon.

Durant helped Golden State win the National Basketball Association crown earlier this month, the first of his career and the second in three seasons for the Warriors. "I'm so happy for you".
