Social Reaction: Westbrook’s Big Day

In case you had Sunday obligations and somehow missed today’s Thunder/Nuggets game, Russell Westbrook made perhaps his biggest MVP-claim yet. He notched his 42nd triple-double of the season (a new NBA record) behind 50 points, 16 rebounds, 10 assists and a massive game-winner as time expired.

In the wake of the final shot, Twitter went wild with folks throwing love in Westbrook’s direction. Here is a collection of MVP endorsements, random bits of praise from the basketball community and a bonus reaction because it was too out of left field to ignore.
