  • NBA announced All-Defensive Teams

Russell Westbrook won the NBA's MVP award after setting a record with 42 triple-doubles last season.

The MVP debate raged on the entire regular season, but the Oklahoma City Thunder star hit new heights in 2016-17, averaging a triple-double for the entire season, a feat not seen since 1962 when Oscar Robertson did it.

He also led the Thunder to a 47-35 record and the No. 6 seed in the Western Conference.

Westbrook's victory ended the first NBA Awards show, which included two wins apiece for the Rockets and Bucks.

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

With the departure of Kevin Durant to Golden State, Westbrook was forced to carry a huge load for the Thunder this season.

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

The players gonna play, play, play, play, play - and Taylor Swift will be there to congratulate them when they win awards for said playing. Russell Westbrook is the individual season champ as a player, the best of the best. But Spurs forward Kawhi Leonard won the award for his game-saving block on James Harden as voted on by the fans.

Hall of Famer Bill Russell was given the NBA's first lifetime achievement award, which was presented to him by five fellow Hall of Fame centers: Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, David Robinson, Alonzo Mourning, Dikembe Mutombo and Shaquille O'Neal. "You guys did any and everything to make sure me and my brother [Raynard] had anything we wanted", he told the audience.

Westbrook earned MVP honors after joining Oscar Roberson as the only player in National Basketball Association history to average a triple-double.

Philadelphia's Dario Saric and Brogdon were unanimously selected to the All-Rookie first team.
