Sights and sounds from Russell Westbrook's return to Oklahoma City

Russell Westbrook spent the first eleven seasons of his NBA career with the Oklahoma City Thunder, carving out a Hall-of-Fame resume in the process.

An MVP, eight All-NBA selections, two scoring titles and eight All-Star selections are just a few of the accolades Westbrook claimed in his time with the Thunder.
