After winning an NBA title for the first time in his career when the Golden State Warriors knocked off the Cleveland Cavaliers in Game 5 on Monday night, Kevin Durant shared a special moment with his mother, Wanda Durant, on the court at Oracle Arena.
Wanda, who became a sensation when her son referred to her as "the real MVP" after he was named NBA MVP in 2014, celebrated with Kevin after he scored 39 points in the decisive fifth game.

Durant dominated the NBA Finals, scoring at least 30 points in all five games, becoming the first player to accomplish that since Shaquille O'Neal did it for the Los Angeles Lakers in 2000, per Elias Sports Bureau (via ESPN Stats & Info).
The Warriors finished one of the great postseason runs in NBA history, going 16-1 en route to winning their second title in three years. It's why Durant signed with the team in the offseason and a moment he got to share with his mother.
