While accepting his award for the NBA's Most Valuable Player, Oklahoma City Thunder star Russell Westbrook teared up when he thanked his family for their love and support.

Westbrook received 69 of the 101 first-place votes, while Harden finished with 22.

The Golden State Warriors had the best defense in the National Basketball Association behind Green, who became the first player in the team's history to finish with 150 steals and 100 blocks in a season.

This is a stark contrast to the tension-filled relationship between the two during February's All-Star festivities, but the former teammates have been reportedly been talking to each other since last April after Durant congratulated Westbrook for breaking Oscar Robertson's record for most triple-doubles in a season. His scoring mark was also the league-leader.

The rapper played Golden State's prolific point guard being invited to a championship celebration from his teammate Draymond Green, played by "Get Out's" Lil Rel Howery.

Westbrook beat Khloe Kardashian's ex-boyfriend James Harden for the MVP Award.

Two of the best moments came during segments that didn't include the NBA's six individual awards.

"I couldn't do none of this without you guys", he said.
