ESPYS host, actor Jon Hamm, opened up Wednesday night’s (July 17) ceremony with a monologue full of jokes, but one of the most brutal was for NBA star Dwight Howard and his decision to leave the Los Angeles Lakers.
“Dwight Howard recently announced he was leaving the Lakers to play …” he said, before the audience erupted in boos. “You guys heard? Leaving the Lakers to play for the Houston Rockets, which is … you know … he’s leaving L.A. So I guess it looks like he finally found a way to help the Lakers win.”
After that, Hamm followed by introducing a highlight package of Howard’s “greatest moments as a Laker.” It was a three-second snippet of Tina Turner — “you’re simply the b–” — without any video footage.
Wow, lol. You’re a cold man Hamm.
