The Oklahoma City Thunder posted a three-minute video as a tribute to Russell Westbrook after he was traded to the Houston Rockets on Thursday.

Westbrook spent all 11 seasons of his illustrious career with the Thunder, earning the 2017 MVP, two scoring titles, and eight All-Star selections. He's also averaged a triple-double for a historic three straight seasons.

The 30-year-old showed love back, posting the same video to Instagram with a long post thanking the organization and its fans for a terrific tenure.

The Rockets shipped Chris Paul and two first-round picks to OKC for an opportunity to reunite Westbrook with James Harden as the club continues its pursuit of an NBA championship.

Westbrook is ranked first all time in several categories for the Thunder since they left Seattle in 2008, including points (18,859), rebounds (5,760), assists (6,897), and minutes (28,330).
