Coming off his fourth NBA championship and being named Finals MVP, Golden State Warriors superstar Stephen Curry is set to host The ESPYS on July 20 in Los Angeles. This will be Curry’s first time at hosting a major live TV event.
Curry has been nominated for three individual ESPY’s this year, including best athlete in men’s sports, best record-breaking performance (for most 3-pointers in NBA history), and best NBA player. He’s also nominated alongside his Golden State Warriors as best team. Curry said in a statement: “I’ve had the pleasure of attending The ESPYS but never imagined I’d have the privilege of hosting this special event. As someone who loves the intersection of sports and entertainment, I look forward to delivering an exciting show for the fans while we celebrate the athletes who created the top moments of the year.”
