Kevin Durant’s Incredibly Amazing and Humble NBA MVP Acceptance Speech … Thank God for Changing My Life … And Said to his Mom, “You Sacrificed For Us. You’re the Real MVP.”

 

An amazing Mother’s Day gift from the NBA’s MVP, Kevin Durant.

There has been so much negative news coming out of the NBA these days; however, Kevin Durant of the Oklahoma Thunder MVP speech is all about what is good. Durant won the MVP award for the first time, but that is not the story. The struggle to get to the top is the real story. There are so many amazing stories of sacrifice and behind one of the game’s best players, is his mom. Durant thanked God for changing his life, humbly thanked his teammates and last but certainly not least tearfully thanked his mom. Durant called his mom “the real MVP”. THIS IS MUST WATCH VIDEO.

And last, my mom. I don’t think you know what you did,” he began, sniffling and wiping away tears. “You had my brother when you were 18 years old — three years later I came out. The odds were stacked against us; single parent with two boys by the time you were 21 years old. Everybody told us we weren’t supposed to be here.”

“You made us believe, you kept us off the street, you put clothes on our backs, food on the table,” he added. “You went to sleep hungry. You sacrificed for us. You’re the real MVP.”

      “Honor thy mother and father”. No father to honor, but mom deserves it.
