After a historic season, Russell Westbrook has been named to the All-NBA First Team.

The NBA announced May 18 that Westbrook was a near-unanimous pick to the team garnering a 99 out of 100 first team votes. Houston's James Harden was the only unanimous pick to the First-Team.

The honor is Westbrook's second time on the first team and sixth selection to an All-NBA team in his career. Westbrook set an NBA single-season record with 42 triple-doubles and joined Oscar Robertson as the only players to average a triple-double throughout an NBA season.
