Oklahoma City Thunder frontman, Kevin Durant received 119 of 125 first-place votes to beat LeBron James and win his first NBA MVP trophy this season.

Durant accepted the trophy Tuesday in the former roller skating rink the team used as a practice facility for a few years after moving from Seattle.

Durant fought back tears as he thanked each of his teammates individually, and he had a special message for his mother, Wanda Pratt.

Pratt got a standing ovation from the crowd after her son said that she was “the real MVP.”

Congrats KD. You definitely deserve it!
