Luckily for the NBA Finals MVP, some of his famous friends have previously hosted the award show. “I talked to 드레이크 그리고 페이튼 매닝 about what the hosting gig is really like, so I’m obviously nervous and excited and all the different emotions,” 카레 말한다.
He’s also planning a few special appearances — including a potential one with his wife, 아이샤 카레.

“There’s so many young guys that are coming up and taking strides and doing amazing things,” Curry tells PEOPLE.
“Obviously I want to win that category and add it to the championship glory of what this year was, but we’ll see what happens,” 그는 덧붙인다.
If he could nominate chance to nominate an NBA player other than himself to host a future ESPYs, Curry says, “오, 드레이몬드 [녹색] 확실히. It would be a seven hour show.”
