The 2022 ESPYS took place live on ABC from Hollywood’s Dolby Theater on Wednesday, July 20, and it was a big night for the show’s host Stephen Curry, who walked away with three trophies.

Curry took home the awards for Best NBA Player, Best Record-Breaking Performance for most 3-pointers made in league history, and a group trophy for Best Team for the recent NBA championship-winning Golden State Warriors.

Elsewhere on the show, Los Angeles Angels star Shohei Ohtani picked up the award for Best Athlete (Men’s Sports), while swimmer Katie Ledecky won for Best Athlete (Women’s Sports). Curry’s Golden State Warriors teammate Klay Thompson received the award for Best Comeback Athlete, and St. Louis Cardinals star Albert Pujols was honored with the Muhammad Ali Sports Humanitarian Award.

Curry is the second NBA player in history to host the ESPY Awards, and he made sure to get a fun little dig in at his predecessor. “I am the second NBA player to host this awards show, which is kind of crazy to think about,” Curry said during his opening monologue. “LeBron James, he hosted this awards show back in 2007 after losing in the NBA Finals. So, yes, you guessed it, this feels better.”

Check out the full list of winners below and let us know what you thought of Curry’s performance as host.
