The NBA is determined to make you get teary this Mother's Day. Borrowing audio from Kevin Durant's heartfelt MVP acceptance speech on Tuesday, the league has produced a lovely, black-and-white commercial for the upcoming holiday.

If that isn't enough mom love from Durant for you, the league has also released a clip from an interview filmed before the ceremony that will air on an upcoming episode of Inside Stuff.
