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 and fought back tears as he thanked his teammates individually.

Durant also took time to thank his mother, who got a standing ovation from the crowd after her son said that she was “the real MVP.”
