The ESPYs came and went Wednesday night. It is OK if you did not notice as they are pretty meaningless and pointless. However, it is a nice bit of entertainment and occassionally a good joke comes out of it.
Mad Men actor John Hamm was this year's host and he was out throwing haymakers in his opening monologue at the NOKIA Theater in Los Angeles last night. Whether it was Dwight Howard leaving Los Angeles or Chris Bosh chasing down Heat fans who apparently left early, Hamm covered the year in sports pretty nicely.

It seems that Shaquille O’Neal picked the wrong fight by calling out the city of Houston.
O’Neal criticized Dwight Howard earlier this month when the highly coveted All-Star center decided to leave Los Angeles and take his talents to Houston. O’Neal called Howard’s decision “expected,” and said “not a not a whole lot of people can handle being under the bright lights”...

That is something Dwight Howard knows having left Orlando after eight years and Los Angeles after one tumultuous year.
Yet, he is Houston's now and the city is embracing him as the conquering...
LAS VEGAS -- Mark Cuban isn't sweating whiffing on Dwight Howard. Not even in the desert.
The NBA's most involved and quoted owner has always been the eternal optimist when it comes to the personnel dealings of the Dallas Mavericks. What else would you expect? So Cuban and his front office went to work when the Mavs finished tied for last in the Howard Sweepstakes.
One can only hope the ashes have died out after the demise of this past Lakers season. Unfortunately the latest string of comments to come out of the Dwight Howard saga might have added a little gasoline to the fire.
It seems everyone lately has taken some parting shots at Howard including Kobe Bryant, Steve Nash, Shaquille O’Neal, and even Ice Cube. Their gripe has...
Video: Possibly the funniest video ever posted
The Dallas Mavericks were one of the teams who were believed to be in the final running earlier this month as Dwight Howard weighed his options for the future. Once it became obvious Howard wasn’t going to return to Los Angeles, the Houston Rockets had to beat out the Mavs and the Golden State Warriors [...]
After signing with the Rockets, Dwight Howard did an interview with Stephen A. Smith, of course. What we have here is a brief “off the record” video which includes Smith explaining that he warned James Dolan not to trade Iman Shumpert, and a few cell phone issues.
