NBA's Mother's Day commercial features Kevin Durant's MVP speech
Watch this. It's sweet.
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. You’ve almost certainly seen the award presentation by now — if you haven’t, or if you would like to watch it for the fourth or fifth time, here’s a handy set of YouTube videos — but Durant’s words with emotional background music will absolutely make you feel feelings.
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. In it, Durant talks to Grant Hill about how much his mother, Wanda Pratt, has helped shape him into the person and player he is today:
