"We weren’t supposed to be here. You made us believe. You kept us off the street, put clothes on our backs, food on the table. When you didn’t eat, you made sure we ate. You went to sleep hungry. You sacrificed for us. You’re the real MVP." - Kevin Durant
This excerpt from Kevin Durant’s 2014 NBA MVP speech, reminds about how moms often are our own Most Valuable Player.
Kevin Durant dawns Sports Illustrated cover, tired of always being second and knows his motivation.
"I’ve been second my whole life. I was the second best player in high school. I was the second pick in the draft. I’ve been second in the MVP voting three times. I came in second in the finals. I’m tired of being second. I’m not going to settle for that. I’m done with it." - Kevin Durant
This is the the first scoring title of Anthony’s 10-year NBA career. However, weirdly enough, this is not Anthony’s highest scoring average of his career. That came during the 2006-07 season, when he averaged 28.9 points per game for George Karl’s Denver Nuggets. Anthony is the first Knick to win the league scoring title since Bernard King led the league during the 1984-85 season.
