This was up there with John Cappelletti's Heisman Trophy speech or even Lou
Gerig's farewell. Very genuine and very touching. One for the ages.
I'm a huge Lebron James fan - I think he's without a doubt the best
all around player since Michael Jordan. Lebron deserves every MVP he's
earned (and even the one Derrick Rose won should have gone to Lebron).But I think Kevin Durrant is as close to Lebron as anyone. That kid is so fun
to watch play the game. He's an effortless scorer. I love how precise and
smooth his shot is. If either Lebron or KD are playing, and it doesn't
matter who they're playing, I'm watching. And that
acceptance speech was pure gold! What an amazing young man. Henry Drummond hit
the nail on the head - who can ever top Durrant's closing: "my mom is
the real MVP"! That's beautiful stuff
Kevin, my guess is that for you, seeing your gratitude for your mother reflected
in the tears of appreciation in her eyes and those of many people in the
audience, especially so close to Mother's Day, is at least as great an
honor as the MBP award.Well done, on every level.
How could you not love this guy? Congrats KD!
Pure word, pure word. KD is an amazing guy. He is a great role model and
citizen. Mr. Reliable.
Really felt the spirit during this talk. This guy is a genuine Christian.
Class Act. I'm a fan!
