Kevin Durant and mom star in NBA Mother's day ad

Posted: Updated:
On Tuesday, Kevin Durant accepted his award as the MVP of the NBA and his tear-filled and emotional speech was the talk of country, especially after he called his mother the real MVP. Now, the NBA has put the Oklahoma City star, and his mom, front and center for a special mother's day ad.

The NBA put together the touching 30 second ad, titled "The MVPs" and posted it to YouTube on Thursday. The audio is clips from Durant's acceptance speech and highlighted by the end when he said the 'only one that really believed in me, that I could do it from day one, was my mom'.

The video is his mother Wanda Pratt, evidently cheering him on at a previous Thunder game. It ends with a Happy Mother's Day message from the NBA and NBAPA.

Watch Kevin Durant's entire emotional acceptance speech here.
