NBA Awards: Drake Roasts the Currys; Taylor Swift Shocks Westbrook; Draymond's Shorts

James Harden Houston Rockets Adidas Harden Vol. 1

The heartfelt moment brought the feels to centerstage as Westbrook accepted his first Most Valuable Player award and shared it with his family.

"Russell, it's Taylor, remember?", the clip, which was posted on the Thunder's Twitter account, begins.

Westbrook played exceptionally well during the past season for the Oklahoma City Thunder and experts took notice of that since Kevin Durant chose to play for the Golden State Warriors.

Russell Westbrook promised himself he wasn't going to cry, but he did.

"I was the one who taught you to play basketball", Swift joked in the video, which shows her rocking a curly updo with bangs and casual white sweater.

In the age of advanced statistics, when an analyst with both a spreadsheet and a pair of working eyes may slide to the side of Harden, it is still an astonishing thought to think Westbrook dominated so wholly against his opponents statistically. Oklahoma City- you guys are here tonight. "You've blessed me with a handsome son that I'm so thankful for".

"Oscar, guys like him, Magic Johnson, those guys, obviously I wasn't able to see those guys play, but just to look back at history and see the things that they did, it's something that I looked up to as a kid", Westbrook said.

In fact, I called out this years MVP years ago so you gotta respect my knowledge for the game lol. "You make sure I'm on the right track and I'm so appreciative of you because so sacrifice so, so much for me every single day and I can't thank you enough".

"You hold me down". It means simply that LeBron is the best player on whatever court he steps, just as Michael Jordan was in his time.

"I want to give a special thanks to all the fans in Oklahoma City".

I am a bit torn on this issue as I am not sure that we need an awards show to give these out, but on the same token I kind of liked the National Basketball Association awards show. "And you've done that this past year-and- a-half, and so I love you guys", he said. Of course that included Westbrook, his running mate in Oklahoma City for eight seasons.
