2017 NBA Awards live streaming: Nominees, how to watch, start time

The Oklahoma City Thunder point guard, who enjoyed a record-setting 2016/2017 season, was handed the prestigious title at the inaugural New York City ceremony on Monday night (26Jun17), and Taylor was among the first to heap praise on Westbrook, sending in a surprise video message.

Russell Westbrook, 2017 NBA MVP, and the first player since Oscar Robertson to average a triple-double for a season, is a hardcore Swiftie.

She added, "You are wonderful, you are the MVP, and I'm so happy for you. It's for all of us". Westbrook had a lovely speech, earnestly thanking those who helped push him to this moment, and this really was a great moment. "I'm so happy for you".

In addition, former UCLA player Bob Myers was named the NBA's Executive of the Year.

"They believe in me", he said. This is a testament to guys who get overlooked. As a wife in this league, to be able to sacrifice some of the things you sacrifice and everything that you do, I can't put it in words and describe how thankful I am to have you in my life. "There are five guys on the floor every time. I'm doing whatever it takes to improve myself and get ready for next year".

I am a bit torn on this issue as I am not sure that we need an awards show to give these out, but on the same token I kind of liked the National Basketball Association awards show. "To be added to the list is special", said Green, the most versatile defender of the lot. "I would like to thank my teammates and my coaches for making my job easy this year". Among the prizes that were up for grabs were NBA Rookie of the Year, Sixth Man, Defensive Player of the Year, Coach of the Year, and the highly-anticipated NBA MVP Award.

"This is the ultimate team award", D'Antoni said.

Why did he win?: Have you looked at his stats? Since that National Basketball Association campaign 55 years ago, several players have come close to averaging a triple-double but have finished short.
