Derrick Rose's Emotional MVP Speech Reminds Us That Mother's Day Is Sunday | Sharapova's Thigh

In the speech, Derrick thanked a long list of people for helping him get to this point. He especially went into detail about his mom, and got very emotional when doing so.

Here's the video, and you might need some kleenex nearby when watching it:

Absolutely great stuff. That should serve as quite a good reminder to everybody that Mother's Day is on Sunday.
