Michael Jordan Posts Inspiring Message For NBA MVP Russell Westbrook

By Timothy Downs

Losing Kevin Durant to the Golden State Warriors was incredibly difficult for the Oklahoma City Thunder.

However, instead of hanging his head for the entire campaign without his former friend and teammate, OKC point guard Russell Westbrook went out there and carried a mediocre team to the playoffs by averaging a triple double for the season, which earned him the NBA MVP award on Monday night.

To show Russ some support, Michael Jordan shared an inspiring, congratulatory post for Westbrook on Tuesday, and also released a new Jordan Brand sneaker in his honor (seen above).
