Dwight Howard Mocked at the ESPY Awards (VIDEO)

Host Jon Hamm of “Mad Men” fame made fun of several superstar athletes last night at the ESPY Awards. The best dig of the show was saved for Dwight Howard, though LeBron James (who took home three trophies while wearing a red tux), Ray Allen, Metta World Peace, Erik Spoelstra, Chris Bosh and Manu Ginobili also heard jokes at their expense.

    pretty weak shots at howard


    i actually thought it was pretty good. Not acknowledging dwight at all. that lebron bald joke was tight 2

  • Dagger

    The greatest highlights montage went on a little too long.

    But seriously, that was pretty funny.

    Very funny

    This was pretty funny. Never understood why people wear sunglasses indoors.

  • RayJr

    Loved it and thank you Slam for posting this.

  • robb

    They think it makes them look cool, like rockstars, but they don’t understand rockstars do it out of necessity because they are usually so wasted they look like sh*t and they can’t stand the lights, specially flashes, that’s why. Athletes doing it look like idiots.

    I just think it makes them look like douche bags. I’ll never understand some of these dumb ass fashion statements today.

  • TBRK

    pretty good writing, definitely tapered off toward the end

  • RayJr

    I’m cool with athletes and celebrities wearing them indoors because they are making a fashion statement and showing how much money they have because whatever they have on are not cheap. But, the few people at my local bar/clubs that wear shades indoors are just douches.

  • http://soundcloud.com/tray-8 T-Ray

    I don’t even give them that much lol as a man I’m not into fashion like that where I have to make a statement so I probably will never understand nor join the fashion movement. I see it all the time out here in LA and it just makes me cringe seeing dudes my age wearing tight bright red pants and think they look manly. The sunglasses indoors is just icing on the cake with me lol

  • underdog

    If somebody wears any accessory / piece of clothing just to show how much money he/she has, is (imo) not a fashion statement.

  • LakeShow


  • Dfrance

    Nah, no matter who does it, they’re a douche.

  • Dfrance

    Nah that “highlight montage” had me rolling.

  • fruizm

    What if youre stoned?

  • http://soundcloud.com/tray-8 T-Ray

    If you’re stoned you draw eyes over your real eyes so it always looks like you’re wide awake. Learned that from the movie “Strange Wilderness”

  • Jay Cutler

    That may be your opinion but a lot of people (if not most people) really do wear clothing to emphasize how much money they have.

    You don’t even need to think about celebrities or grown men. Think back to high school.

  • fruizm

    Hahaha thanks for the tip!

  • http://soundcloud.com/tray-8 T-Ray

    You got it bud haha

  • O

    I thought Jon Hamm was a pretty weak host. Why get an actor from a drama series play comedic host to an Awards show? I thought last year Rob Riggie did a pretty good job. He had me cracking up with his jokes because he knew how to deliver them.

  • shockexchange

    The Shock Exchange has a saying for moments like these, “Humor is a way of saying something serious.” Hamm was joking and and dead serious at the same ____ time.

  • nuhuh

    Like wearing Ed Hardy t-shirts.

  • Lloyd

    I always think comedians are the best hosts, but Hamm shows that he had a good team of writers behind him. The Ryan Lochte, Bruno Mars, Ray Allen, and Heat fans leaving early jokes were spot on.

  • bike

    LeBron looked like a douche bag in that red suit.

  • RayJr

    I wear Jordans with regular jeans or shorts. But as far as the regular joe schmoe trying to dress like Lil Wayne please stop. I’m sure every other dude in LA dresses like that. I feel for you bro lol

  • RayJr

    Pros, actors, musicians etc are going to do that. I’m talking about any regular guy trying to look like Lil Wayne. Thats douchy.

  • http://soundcloud.com/tray-8 T-Ray

    Yea it’s f*ckin epidemic. I mean when I go to special occasions I dress up but dudes out here are like females. They shop more than they do it’s pretty pathetic lol

  • RayJr

    lmao epidemic…I can’t stop cracking up. Thanks for the laugh lol

  • http://soundcloud.com/tray-8 T-Ray

    Laugh at my expense why don’t you lol not like I have to live around these freaks everyday.

  • RayJr

    Lol sorry bro.

  • Max

    Like you said haha.

  • Max


  • Max

    I was laughing so hard when he said Bruno Mars haha.

  • AlbertBarr

    I think it tapered cause he lost the room with a few of the jokes. Hit a little too close.

  • Caboose

    I DON’T NEED TO SEE ANYBODY, THEY NEED TO SEE ME -thought every idiot celebrity at some point.

  • Caboose

    You ever seen the Archer episode with Jon Hamm? Hamm has comedic timing, he’s just famous for drama. Ditto with someone like Bryan Cranston.

  • bigA


    Your white, huh? Just kidding I guess we are all white when it comes to Ed Hardy

  • http://www.netstakeover.com/ JetSkiJohnson

    its just sunglasses

  • http://www.netstakeover.com/ JetSkiJohnson

    Dwight Howard is gonna kill LA

  • http://soundcloud.com/tray-8 T-Ray

    No. No they’re not.

  • http://www.netstakeover.com/ JetSkiJohnson

    lol they anger you that much?????

  • http://soundcloud.com/tray-8 T-Ray

    Lol no it’s just annoying to see. If you lived where I lived you’d see. I’m just not into that sort of thing. The whole LA trend is just out of control.
