Kevin Durant said it in his MVP speech and now we’ll all get to see it play out on television — his mom is the real MVP.

KD’s mom, Wanda Pratt, is an undeniably force in the NBA players life. And now, with the help of Lifetime and Queen Latifah’s production company Flavor Unit, her story of troubling times to triumph will now be made into a movie called, “The Real MVP:The Wanda Pratt Story”.

The Real MVP is the inspiring true story of Wanda Pratt and her dedication to raise one of the greatest basketball players in the world. As a single mom of two by the time she was just 21, Wanda tirelessly worked to make ends meet and put a roof over the heads of her young sons. With the support of her mother Barbara and of her best friend, Wanda focused all her energy on keeping her boys out of trouble and on the basketball court, selflessly putting aside her own dreams and desires to make sure their goals could be achieved. Her hard work paid off as Tony earned basketball scholarships while Kevin headed to the NBA. When Kevin was named NBA’s Most Valuable Player, he dedicated his speech to Wanda, naming her “the real MVP” for all of her sacrifices that allowed him to pursue his dreams.

In the Lifetime movie, Cassandra Freeman will stars as Wanda, Tracie Thoms as her best friend and confidante, and Pauletta Washington will portray her mother Barbara. The adult Kevin and Tony will be played by newcomers Daniel Bellomy and Nic Few.
