The Oklahoma City Thunder just won four straight against a San Antonio Spurs team that had won 20 straight prior to that. They fell behind by double digits in Game 6, then zoomed ahead in the third quarter and out-executed arguably the smartest team in the league. They did it the hard way, shattering so many criticisms of their roster and their on-court chemistry.
All that probably explains why Kevin Durant couldn't wait until the buzzer sounded in Game 6 to give his customary hug to mother Wanda Pratt.
What's underrated about the Thunder is that they have experienced a degree of heartbreak. Last year's Western Conference finals featured a stunning collapse in Game 4. The year before, they competed hard against the Los Angeles Lakers, but just weren't ready. Durant is only 23, but he's experienced much more than your average 23-year-old in the NBA.
All this is to say: Hug your mom before the game ends. Let out that emotion. You deserve it, and so do your teammates.
