Talk about a class act! During his MVP Speech, Kevin Durant graciously and humbly thanked everyone who had ever influenced him in his life. Then toward the end of his speech, he pulled out all the stops to acknowledge his Mother and all the sacrifices she has made for her family. Simply put, without her sacrifice and strength, Kevin Durant would not have been accepting the MVP Award, let alone playing in the NBA! He even went so far as to name his Mom the “Real MVP”, which was met with a standing ovation and thunderous applause.
With Mother’s Day right around the corner, we’d like to thank Kevin Durant for the heart felt speech and for giving credit where credit is due. Moms all over the world deserve to be recognized in this manner and maybe Kevin’s speech will give us all a nudge to make this Mother’s Day a special one!
Let’s give that man a cigar for his great work!
