Get the Kleenex ready!
With Mother’s Day here, we couldn’t help but remember this touching moment when NBA forward Kevin Durant paid a moving and tearful tribute to his mom. Named the NBA’s most valuable player in 2014, an emotional Durant brought down the house calling his mother the real MVP for raising his family through difficult times.
“We weren’t supposed to be here. You made us believe,” Durant told his mother. “You kept us off the street. You put clothes on our backs. You put food on the table. When you didn’t eat, you made sure we ate and [you] went to sleep hungry. You sacrificed for us. You’re the real MVP.”
Mother and son weren’t the only ones in tears as she received a standing ovation, proving that there isn’t anything quite as powerful as a mother’s love and sacrifice.
Give yourselves a well-deserved pat on the backs, Moms!
