Jordan to Introduce Westbrook at Oklahoma Hall of Fame Ceremony

Organizers say Michael Jordan will introduce Russell Westbrook when the Oklahoma City Thunder star is inducted into the Oklahoma Hall of Fame next month.

Hall of Fame officials announced the presenters Thursday for the ceremony on Nov. 17.

Jordan, who now owns the Charlotte Hornets, will introduce Westbrook, who signed a three-year contract extension with the Thunder in August. Westbrook is an ambassador for Jordan Brand.

The 27-year-old Westbrook piled up 18 triple-doubles last season. The two-time All-Star Game MVP and former scoring champion averaged 23.5 points, 7.8 rebounds and 10.4 assists last season and helped the Thunder reach the Western Conference finals, where they fell in seven games to Golden State.

In addition to Westbrook, the 2016 Oklahoma Hall of Fame class includes Rita Bly Aragón, Dale; Michael Burrage, Antlers; Dan Dillingham, Enid; Rebecca Dixon, Lenapah; and Kelli O’Hara, Elk City/Edmond.
