Football legend Peyton Manning was the host of the ESPY’s this year, the sports network’s annual awards show. Taking on this role, Manning was well aware that it was part of his job to take a few jabs at a bunch of fellow athletes and teams – but one particular superstar obviously didn’t want to be poked.
During Manning’s monologue, he took aim at NBA champ and Finals MVP Kevin Durant. (To give you a bit of context with the dig, Durant left the Oklahoma City Thunder in order to get his championship ring with the Golden State Warriors. Russell Westbrook, the league’s most valuable player this past season….Durant’s former teammate….is still a member of the Thunder.)
