Drew Brees, Landon Donovan Own Spotlight at ESPYs

The day after the Major League Baseball All-Star game is one of only two days on the calender where there are no major professional sport’s games scheduled. So ESPN has seized that day as an opportunity to do an annual award show, the ESPYs.espys

Started in 1993, the show has grown in size and stature much like ESPN. There are awards given in a variety of categories, some so similar it’s impossible to differentiate (best moment and best play?).

This year’s event was held Wednesday night in Los Angeles. Denver Nuggets head coach George Karl received the Jimmy V award, named after former NCAA basketball coach Jim Valvano.

LeBron James announced tonight that he is joining the Miami Heat. This is a huge issue for sports fans, and some are even calling the event “The Decision.”

James was born December 30, 1984 in Akron, Ohio. He attended St. Vincent-St. Mary High School in Ohio. James became a starter during his freshman year and averaged 21 points and 6.3 rebounds that year. He was named “Mr. Basketball” of Ohio as a sophomore, the youngest player to receive this honor. During his junior year, James petitioned the NBA to be drafted, but he was denied.
