The Big O Joins Ceremony For Westbrook’s Historic Season


Before tipoff against the Denver Nuggets on Wednesday night, the Thunder held a brief ceremony at midcourt recognizing Russell Westbrook and his historic 2016-17 season.

Joining the ceremony was Oscar Robertson, the all-time great whose single-season record for triple-doubles Westbrook broke on Sunday. “When Russell was on this journey, I just felt I had to be here,” Robertson said. “What he’s done is historic in nature. … You people should really be proud of him.” Robertson ended his brief speech by saying, “I just have one more thing to say: M-V-P.”
