Emotional NBA MVP acceptance speeches are nothing new.  We’ve seen plenty of players shed a tear as they thank all of the people who have helped them get to this special moment in their lives.

These speeches always tend to involve players listing all of the sacrifices that they and the people around them have made throughout the years, and by the end, more than half the room is crying, including the MVP himself.

Oklahoma City Thunder guard Russell Westbrook was the latest NBA MVP to be moved to tears during his speech when he accepted the award last night at Basketball City at Pier 36 in New York City.
