LANHAM, Md. (CBSDC) — The only place where Kevin Durant is more loved than Oklahoma City is Washington, D.C.

Just days after the Thunder star won his first NBA MVP award, a billboard was erected near Durant’s hometown of Seat Pleasant in Prince George’s County.

The billboard congratulates the 25-year-old all-star, reading: “from Seat Pleasant, MD to NBA MVP.”

It also features a photo of Durant looking down while wearing headphones, presumably Skullcandy brand, since the company’s logo is in the upper right corner of the billboard.

The road-side ad, which went up sometime Tuesday morning, is located along Central Avenue just across the D.C. line into Prince George’s County — just miles from where Durant grew up — and it appears to be a big hit.

Tiffany Ouarid, office manager for Q’s Quality Cars — whose used car lot offers perhaps the best up-close view of the ad — said “there seems to be a lot” of people coming by to take pictures of the billboard.

Durant gave Prince George’s County a shoutout during his memorable MVP press conference.

“I come from a small county outside of Washington, D.C., called P.G. County,” he said.
