It’s time for the ESPYS, the biggest night in sports! The world’s best athletes — from LeBron James to Abby Wambach — will be honored at the July 13 awards show and HollywoodLife.com wants you to see every second! Click to watch.
There’s only one night where Stephen Curry, 28, can hang out with Danica Patrick, 34, JJ Watt, 27, and Justin Timberlake, 35– and that’s the ESPYS! The event brings together the biggest and the brightest athletes in sports, and the 2016 award show is definitely not one to miss!
This event is going to be epic. Thankfully, if any sports rivals start to misbehave during the July 13 event, host John Cena, 39, will be there to break them up. The WWE superstar (and one of the best parts of the movie, Trainwreck) will help pass out the prestigious awards throughout the night, along with stars from the sports and entertainment world. The show begins at 8:00 P.M. EST so be ready to see all your favorite athletes.
The 2016 ESPYS will be live streamed on two locations (after you enter in your cable/satellite information.) ESPN will broadcast the show on ESPN3 (CLICK HERE FOR ESPN’S 2016 ESPY LIVE STREAM) and the show will also air on ABC. CLICK HERE FOR ABC’S 2016 ESPY LIVE STREAM.
This night might be the latest shot fired in the sports rivalry between LeBron James, 31, and Steph Curry. Both NBA stars are up for Best Male Athlete of the year. Though LeBron almost single-handedly brought the 2016 NBA Championship to Cleveland, Steph and his Golden State Warriors broke tons of records during the past season. Could the NBA’s MVP score this victory, or will LeBron beat Steph, yet again?
It will also be exciting to see which moment wins Best Upset. Roberta Vinci, 33, beating Serena Williams at the 2015 US Open is up against Middle Tennessee beating Michigan State in the Men’s NCAA Basketball Tournament. Both of those might get KO’d by Holly Holm’s, 34, shocking knockout of Ronda Rousey, 29.
It won’t all be rivalries and knockouts. Justin Timberlake will make history when he presents the ESPY Icon award to not one, but THREE legends of the sport. Kobe Bryant, 37, Peyton Manning, 40, and World Cup winner, Abby Wambach, 36, will all receive the honor. Plus, Zaevion Dobson will receive the Arthur Ashe Courage Award. It’s going to be incredible so be sure to watch every second!
