OKLAHOMA CITY – As many families prepare to celebrate Mother’s Day this weekend, the NBA received a bit of inspiration from one of our own.

The NBA just released a new advertisement for Mother’s Day, featuring Kevin Durant and his mom.

Durant received national attention for his MVP speech, in which he emotionally thanked his mother for her sacrifices.

In this latest video entitled “MVPs,” a bit of Durant’s speech can heard in the background as his mother, Wanda Pratt, takes center stage during a game.

Durant says, “It’s so surreal to me, it’s a blessing looking around and see all of this. To be honest, I didn’t think I’d be here. The only one that really believed in me, that I could do it from day one was my mom. “
