The true grit of Russell Westbrook

Passion and perseverance. The battered Leuzinger High School gym sits tranquilly in the morning darkness, the peace not yet broken by the noise of another day full of drills, scrimmages, and workouts. A solitary figure moves inside, pushing an old dust mop to prepare the floor for the upcoming day. This figure, standing at only five feet and nine inches of height and weighing in at a slight 150 pounds, doesn’t possess the physical presence evocative of a top tier basketball player. His frame looks more at home behind the dust mop than in game action, battling for a loose ball or driving...

2017 NBA Awards: Russell Westbrook wins MVP award over James Harden

Triple-doubles mean more then wins. The 2016-17 NBA MVP award came down to three players: Rockets guard James Harden, Thunder guard Russell Westbrook, and Spurs small forward Kawhi Leonard. Each had their own case, Harden averaged career highs in points (29.1), rebounds (8.1), and assists (11.2). Westbrook set the single-season record for triple-doubles with 42. Leonard was by far the best player on a 61-21 Spurs team. But the triple-double record was too much for the MVP voters to overlook, Westbrook was named the 2016-17 NBA MVP.
