My 2 Cents: Kevin Durant Named NBA's MVP

Posted: Updated:
OKLAHOMA CITY -

Kevin Durant's MVP acceptance speech Tuesday will go down as one of the great speeches by an athlete.

There didn't appear to be any notes he spoke through tears from his heart, thanking God, his teammates, coaches, fans, family and finally his mother.

Here's a tissue you're going to need it.

"The odds were stacked against us, a single parent with two little boys by the time you were 21 years old," Kevin said about his mother. "One of the best memories I have is when we moved into our first apartment, no bed, no furniture and we just all say in the living room and hugged each other because we thought we'd made it. We weren't suppose to be here. You made us believe, you kept us off the street, put clothes on our backs, food on the table. When you didn't eat, you made sure we ate, you went to bed hungry. You're the real MVP."

Not a dry eye in the place, total class. I'm Kelly Ogle and that's My 2 Cents.
