Okay if you have not seen Kevin Durant‘s speech as he accepted his Kia MVP Award, you definitely need to grab a box of tissues before you do! I made the mistake of clicking on the link this morning on the ride to work and there was no tissue in sight! Bad move…you’ll see why in a moment.
It is extremely difficult to decide which part of his speech was the most powerful. Could it be the part where he thanked God before and after his speech, acknowledging him as the Alpha and Omega of his life? Or some may say that the best part was when he recognized all of his team mates, coaches and staff individually, carefully verbalizing the specific reasons why each person’s support meant so much to him.
But, with mother’s day approaching this weekend, we have to agree that we could barely hold it together when he thanked his mom, who as a single parent at the age of eighteen, sacrificed everything for him and his brothers, moving from one apartment to the next seeking a better life. Watch how he humbly ends his speech…(click the link below).

We are reminded of a quote from John Maxwell: “If you are a leader, you should never forget that everyone needs encouragement. And everyone who receives it – young or old, successful or less-than-successful, unknown or famous – is changed by it”.
