Watch Kevin Durant’s powerful, emotional MVP acceptance speech

by

Kevin Durant received an overwheling 119 of 125 first-place votes to beat LeBron James and win his first NBA MVP trophy this season. Durant accepted the trophy Tuesday in the former roller skating rink the team used as a practice facility for a few years after moving from Seattle.

Durant fought back tears as he thanked each of his teammates individually, and he had a special message for his mother, Wanda Pratt. Pratt got a standing ovation from the crowd after her son said that she was “the real MVP.”
