Russell Westbrook of the Oklahoma City Thunder received the NBA’s most valuable player award this year. Let’s take a moment of reflection on this incredible achievement. I would like to discuss this real life moment with you.
I won’t pretend to know everything about Russell Westbrook but I would like to acknowledge that his example of push-through and tenacity are extraordinary. Most like to focus only on the greatness one has accomplished and only hold them in high regard then. But I like to take time to look at what bought them there. How did they attain this moment?
One does not have to go far to recognize the support Russell Westbrook had in his corner. Although Russell did not mention everything in his speech after achieving MVP, he did acknowledge some very important points. Some include the sacrifices that come when trying to accomplish certain goals and the fact that it will affect those around you who love you and are there for you. Most of all, the great encouragement each brought to Russel to keep moving forward, no matter what! This to me was Russel’s greatest moment, when he recognized it took him along with those closest to him to get to where he is today.
Another, important real life moment this year in the NBA was the night when the Golden State Warriors won the Finals Championship. Kevin Durant of the Golden State Warriors won team MVP. This was an incredible night not only for the Golden State Warriors but for Kevin too. You see, he left the Oklahoma City Thunder and joined the Warriors this season. He played alongside like brothers with Russell Westbrook. How amazing that both Russell and Kevin won MVP this year. At the end of the game, you see Kevin Durant’s mother come to him and tell him that he did it. And when he received the award the same night of the finals you hear him say to his mother, “We did it. I told you when I was 8 years old. We did it.”

Two very amazing stories which when reflected upon bring great encouragement to many who would take the time to recognize each one of these achievements did not come easy. You can see that outside the NBA on a personal level they had an ability to get past opposition, negativity and many obstacles and attained great success! Tenacity, persistence, true support from loved ones and amazing grace to keep moving forward no matter what! It’s so vital to look not only upon the achievement one gains but what did it take to get there
