Happy Mother's Day the NBA MVP Way

NBA player Kevin Durant, of the Oklahoma City Thunder, gave a really great Thank You speech after being named this season's most valuable player.  He paid tribute to his coach and team mates in a ten minute address which you can follow at the link if you wish.  (Commentators are saying it's the greatest sports speech since Lou Gehrig's retirement speech -- I think that was sometime in the sixties. -- never mind, Linda Hilton, a baseball fan, has informed me the date was actually 1939. Thanks, Linda!)

 

but he also commemorated his mother, a part of his speech that brought tears to many in the audience.  The NBA has put together a Mother's Day publicity spot which I thought I would share with you. (It only takes thirty seconds.)
