Drake’s opening monologue at the 2014 ESPYs started off rough, but he has recovered well. The monologue finished on a high note when he introduced the Lance Stephenson blow cam, where he blew in audience members ears like Stephenson did to Miami Heat superstar LeBron James during the 2014 NBA Playoffs.
A skit with Blake Griffin that featured a surprise appearance from Drake rival Chris Brown was hilarious. Then Drake hilariously introduced boxer Floyd Mayweather to announce an award.
The theme of the skit was to make fun of his elaborate entrances to the boxing ring, which recently included Lil Wayne rapping and Justin Bieber tagging along. Drake read from a scroll in an accent as a Money Team podium was erected, trumpeters blew their horns and a carpet was rolled out.
Things are picking up at the Drake hosted ESPYs.
