The 2016 Espy’s were held in Los Angeles & they were hosted by WWE wrestler turned actor John Cena. From LeBron James winning the ‘Athlete of the Year’ award to Kobe Bryant receiving the ‘Icon’ award this year was definitely one for the books.
Check out a few highlights from the 2016 Espy’s Below.

Kobe Bryant Receives the Icon Award
Carmelo Anthony, Chris Paul, Dwyane Wade & LeBron James Speak Out Against Violence in America
After winning games 1 & 2 in Oakland, the Warriors took a flight to the Mid West to face off with a desperate Cavaliers squad. As expected the Cavs blew the Warriors out the water with explosive play from King James & Kyrie Irving. Game 4 didn’t go as well for the Cavs, as the Warriors stole that game on the road although the officials made a few questionable calls.
For game 5, the Warriors leader Draymond Green was suspended for aggressive play & the Cavs took advantage. Both Kyrie & LeBron scored 41 points, leading their desperate squad to a must win victory. Although Klay Thompson scored 37 points, that wasn’t enough for the win. I’m expected Steph Curry to have a big game tonight for game 6 in Cleveland.
The Golden State Warriors & the Cleveland Cavaliers are back in the NBA Finals for the second year in a row. With an injured Steph Curry, the Warriors have relied heavily on Klay Thompson & Draymond Green to carry the load. The bench, led by Shawn Livingston & Andre Iguodala have out played the Cavs bench which has led to back to back victories by double digits. We are heading back to Cleveland for game 3, so lets hope LeBron James, Kyrie Irving & the Cavs are up for the challenge.
Check out high lights from the first two games below.
