Russell Westbrook delivered a powerful and tearful speech after being named the 2016-17 Most Valuable Player at the NBA Awards.

Westbrook thanked everyone from his family to his teammates and colleagues - even down to the team chef - in a moving speech that was strongly received by those in attendance. He was in tears by the end of it.

While he's often criticized for hogging the headlines, Westbrook was immensely humble and gracious in his greatest moment of triumph.
