With 119 of 125 1st place votes, Kevin Durant received the MVP trophy today and his mother received an early Mother’s day gift as KD explained why his Mom is the real MVP during one of the most touching speeches I’ve ever heard from an athlete.

It was so touching that it even put a smile on Kendrick Perkin’s face.

“I hated you before you got here” – KD to Perkins


If you don’t shed a tear, like his mother, many of his teammates and audience members, then you must not be human.
