Kevin Durant was officially named the MVP of the NBA for the 2013-14 season. Durant garnered 119 of the 125 possible 1st place votes to win by a landslide. He led the Thunder to the 2nd best record in the league, while also filling in for Russell Westbrook who missed almost half the season recovering from various knee ailments. He averaged 32 points, 7.4 rebounds, and 5.5 assists per game on 50/39/87 shooting.
Let it sink in Oklahoma. A decade ago, we were a fly-by state with little to no chance of ever landing a pro-sports franchise. Now, the NBA’s Most Valuable Player resides here, in the 405. Enjoy the moment and appreciate the fact that we are watching greatness. Congratulations Kevin Wayne Durant, your 2013-14 KIA NBA MVP.
Durant will be presented with his MVP trophy on Wednesday night, before Game 2 of the Clippers vs. Thunder series.
