ESPY Host Jon Hamm Disses Dwight Howard In Opening Monologue [VIDEO]
Over the last couple of weeks, I have been very blunt and honest with my opinions about Dwight Howard – he’s self-centered, rude, arrogant and not a guy I would want on my basketball team. And then last night, I happened to turn on the 20th Anniversary of the ESPY Awards for the only part I honestly care about: the host’s opening monologue.
This year’s host was Jon Hamm, who is most known for his leading role in the hit TV series “Mad Men” on AMC. In my opinion, his monologue overall was slightly above average, aside from one piece that stood out from the rest – his bit on Dwight Howard leaving the Los Angeles Lakers for the Houston Rockets.
I think what really sold this for me was the reaction of Dwyane Wade after the “highlight package” from Howard’s single season with the Lakers – absolutely priceless. Props to Jon Hamm and the ESPN producers who put that together, well played!
