Westbrook earns a second first-team All-NBA nod and sixth All-NBA selection in seven seasons

NBA: Playoffs-Oklahoma City Thunder at Houston Rockets Erik Williams-USA TODAY Sports

After surpassing Oscar Roberson’s single-season triple-double record while averaging 31.6 ppg, 10.7 rpg, and 10.4 apg, Oklahoma City Thunder phenom Russell Westbrook has received his sixth All-NBA selection, and second-consecutive first-team nod.

Westbrook, who recently celebrated the birth of his son Noah, gained 99 of a possible 100 first-team votes.

Joining the Thunder’s versatile star as All-NBA members include:

All-NBA First Team:

  • Kawhi Leonard (Spurs)
  • LeBron James (Cavs)
  • James Harden (Rockets)
  • Russell Westbrook (Thunder)
  • Anthony Davis (Pelicans)

All-NBA Second Team:

  • Stephen Curry (Golden State)
  • Isaiah Thomas (Boston)
  • Kevin Durant (Golden State)
  • Giannis Antetokounmpo (Bucks)
  • Rudy Gobert (Jazz)

All-NBA Third Team

  • John Wall (Wizards)
  • DeMar DeRozan (Raptors)
  • Draymond Green (Golden State)
  • Jimmy Butler (Chicago)
  • DeAndre Jordan (Clippers)

Interestingly, as we inch closer to the NBA’s MVP announcement, James Harden stood out as the sole All-NBA selection to gain unanimous first-team honors from a diverse voting panel.

Additionally, Golden State was the only franchise to boast multiple (3) All-NBA additions.

Players controversially left off this season’s list include: Gordon Hayward (Utah), Paul George (Indiana), Chris Paul (Clippers), Hassan Whiteside (Miami), and Marc Gasol (Grizzlies).

Following his record-breaking 42 triple-doubles, Russell Westbrook etched his name among the NBA’s elite for a sixth time in seven seasons.

As the off-season materializes for OKC, General Manager Sam Presti is rumored to be serious about tendering Westbrook a super max extension this summer in the neighborhood of $220 Million.

The year of Westbrook marches on.
