Drake Hosts 2014 Espy Awards

Drake hosted the 2014 Espy Awards.
HOLLYWOOD
—The biggest names in professional sports walked the red carpet for the 2014 Espy Awards on July 16.  The ceremony was hosted by rapper/actor Drake who won rave reviews for his comedic hi-jinks on “Saturday Night Live.” 

 

His opening monologue proved to be a lot funnier than many expected as he took jabs at LeBron James, Donald Sterling, Prince Fielder and Richard Sherman. Throughout the night the host did a bevy of skits, one involving NBA star Blake Griffin, where the duo switched personas; it was indeed a funny bit to say the least.

 

The highlight in my eyes involved Drake and his supposed nemesis Chris Brown burying the hatchet to get a few laughs with the audience. Pure genius in my opinion! A full list of this year’s winners are listed below:
