During the 2017 NBA Awards, several Oklahoma City players were recognized for their talents.

The race was no lock, though as Harden and Leonard both had seasons for the ages as well.

Major League Baseball does not give a single award for the game's best defender, instead issuing Gold Gloves to the best defender at each position.

Why did he win?: Have you looked at his stats?

During a season that was dulled to some extent by the expectation that Golden State would be the champion, Westbrook was the NBA's most interesting and valuable player. He became only the second player ever, and first since Oscar Robertson 55 years ago in 1962, to average a triple-double. Instead, the honor went to Brogdon.

Congratulations, Russ! Thanks for the absolute joy of getting to watch that year of ball play out.

Why did he win?: Gordon helped power one of the NBA's top offenses. But the most impressive part of Gordon's season was his 3-point shooting.

He finished the game with a stat line of 50 points, 16 rebounds and 10 assists.

Houston coach Mike D'Antoni won his second Coach of the Year gong.

Westbrook led the league in scoring (31.6 ppg), ranked third in the National Basketball Association in assists per game (10.4) and was 10th overall in rebounding (10.7). The Oklahoma City Thunder point guard has a good chance to defend his crown in the 2017-2018 season, though he'll have plenty of competition. It was a big improvement from the Rockets' 41-41 record in the previous season.

According to ESPN, there was a major surprise when it came to the National Basketball Association award handed out for top rookie, or at least for those believing one of the Philadelphia Sixers' young stars would claim it. He did not quit on the team and took the "hardest path" by going back home to Los Angeles or some other super team but instead led by example and at times dragged the team along with him as he sprinted towards the playoffs.

The Sager Strong Award could not have gone to a more deserving recipient than Williams who has shown tremendous strength in character and mind amid all the things that had happen. "To be added to the list is special", said Green, the most versatile defender of the lot.
