Drake Hosts 2014 Espy Awards
Posted by LaDale Anderson on Jul 21, 2014 - 6:52:23 PM

Drake hosted the 2014 Espy Awards.
—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:
