Just Go Watch Kevin Durant's MVP Speech

May 7, 2014

Yesterday Kevin Durant won the NBA MVP. Then he delivered a 26 minute acceptance speech without a single note. Given all of the negative attention that has been following the NBA of late, I'd encourage y'all to take a few minutes and watch this speech. It's the anti-LeBron "I'm taking my talents to South Beach," address. 

It's heartfelt, honest, and, I'm not going to lie, it's probably going to get a little dusty wherever you watch.

I've linked the entire 26 minute speech because everyone else is just posting snippets. If you get bored while he's thanking his teammates fast forward to the end where he thanks his mom. Given that Mother's Day is Sunday, it's probably going to make you cry.

Consider this a little bit of anti-Donald Sterling news for you guys.

Plus, what else do you want me to do today, a mock draft?
