The ESPYs: It's LeBron's 'Lebrogative' and That Guy Jimmy Kimmel's Funny Too

The BV Entertainment Newswire Blog - New York, NY, USA - The ESPYs (otherwise known as the mother lode of sports montages) is where the worlds of sports and entertainment collide. Fittingly at the Kodak Theatre in Los Angeles.

This year's sports-celeb fest was hosted by Jimmy Kimmel and LeBron James and provided laughs, tears, and of course endless self-promotion of ESPN.

But there's more to the ESPYs than kicks and giggles (and really -- shameless ESPN promotion). The ESPYs raise money for the V Foundation, which was created to honor Jimmy Valvano, men's basketball head coach at N.C. State from 1980-1990, who died of cancer shortly after making his memorable "Never Give Up Speech" at the first ESPYs in 1993.

Over the years the foundation has raised $60 million for cancer research.

As for the night, San Diego Chargers' LaDainian Tomlinson was the big winner but there were plenty of champs in the house, starting with LeBron James.

The King arrived on a throne and later on in the show rocked a '88 Bobby Brown hair cut and MC Hammer pants in his performance of 'Lebrogative.'

There was much lacking in his singing and dancing (mainly singing and dancing talent), but it was hilarious nonetheless.
