The ESPYs gather top celebrities from sports and entertainment to commemorate the past year in sports by recognizing major sports achievements, reliving unforgettable moments and saluting the leading performers and performances.” –ESPN Press Release
This year’s 16th annual ESPYs awards features 37 categories, but there are two that Lakers’ fans should focus on–Best Male Athlete & Best NBA Player.
Kobe Bryant is nominated in both.
Being named the league’s MVP doesn’t guarantee that #24 will win these awards. That’s where you come in.
For the first time you can decide who takes home the ESPY. Voting has begun on ESPN’s ESPY website and will continue through July 12th.
The ESPY awards will be hosted by Justin Timberlake and will air on Sunday July 20th at 6pm Pacific on ESPN.
