Jordan sent Westbrook a letter after Westbrook won MVP.

Michael Jordan sent Russell Westbrook a simple note after he won MVP.

CONGRATS, RUSSELL.

I GOT MY FIRST MVP AWARD BEFORE MY FIRST RING, TOO... KEEP GOING!

Jordan Brand also had a commercial for Westbrook in the moments following his win after a historic season where he became the second player to ever average a triple-double. It’s an extremely catchy math lesson you can watch here. But there’s nothing like receiving a note from Michael Jordan himself.
