Westbrook named first team All-NBA

Westbrook named first team All-NBA

One of the most least surprising award this season has been announced. The NBA announced on Thursday, Russell Westbrook has been named to the first team All-NBA squad.

Westbrook, who set an NBA record with 42 triple-doubles in a season, breaking Oscar Roberston’s insane record of 41 triple-doubles.

Westbrook averaged career highs in points (31.6) rebounds (10.7) and assists (10.7). He tied his career-high average in assists (10.4). His totals in all three categories were all career bests.

For Westbrook, this is the sixtth time he’s made an All-NBA team. It is the second time he has been named as a first-team choice. He has been first-team selections in back-to-back seasons. Westbrook was also second-team selection from 2011-13 and in 2015.

Unfortunately for Westbrook, Harden was the only unanimous selection. Westbrook and LeBron James both received 498 votes, second most on the all-NBA teams.

Westbrook should win the NBA’s MVP award, as he’s an early favorite to do so. That will be announced on June 26 in New York City in the NBA’s first ever award show.

Here is the complete voting for all three All-NBA teams
