Durant congratulates Westbrook on MVP award

The day after Russell Westbrook won the NBA Most Valuable Player award at the inaugural NBA Awards show, his former teammate Kevin Durant sent out his congratulations.

The Finals MVP sent out the message to him and the public via his YouTube Page.

“I called out this years MVP years ago so you gotta respect my knowledge for the game lol,” Durant wrote. “Huge congrats to Russell Westbrook on MVP, that boy went out there and was a created player on 2k all year, f***** balled out. Gotta respect it!”

Durant’s YouTube posts included congratulations for all the award winners from his Golden State Warriors teammate Draymond Green for being voted the Defensive Player of the Year all the way to the Houston Rockets Eric Gordon who won Sixth Man of the Year.

Durant even mentioned former bearded Thunder guard James Harden in his post.

“Shoutout my boy James Harden,” Durant wrote. “For 5 years now he’s taken his game to the next level, he will be an MVP one day, he’s an MVP now, he’s made so many people proud. I know this first hand, recognize what he has done for the game.”
