Kevin Durant, of the Oklahoma City Thunder, made a memorable speech Tuesday as he accepted the NBA's MVP award for the 2013-2014 season.

Durant began his speech by thanking God "for changing my life and letting me really realize what life is all about. Basketball is just a platform in order for me to inspire people."

He then emotionally described the struggles he had growing up and then paid tribute to his mother, Wanda Pratt, who raised him and his brother as a single parent.
