WATCH: Russell Westbrook voted 2016-17 Shaqtin' a Fool MVP
MANILA, Philippines – Russell Westbrook is a strong candidate for this NBA season's Most Valuable Player award. But for now he is assured of another crown: the 2016-17 Shaqtin' a Fool MVP.
The Oklahoma City Thunder guard was unveiled as the gag show's MVP on Tuesday, June 13 (Wednesday in Manila), a day after his ex-teammate Kevin Durant brought home the Finals MVP trophy and the NBA title with the Golden State Warriors.
Westbrook was voted the winner by fans from a field that included Marcus Smart, Zaza Pachulia, and Dwight Howard.
Westbrook's most notorious blooper came in January during a game against the Warriors, when he committed the most blatant and hilarious traveling violation.
Here's another angle showing the Warriors bench erupting in laughter.
