Steph Curry, whose most recent NBA season included breaking the record for 3-point field goals, winning another championship with his Golden State Warriors, and securing his first NBA Finals MVP, fittingly hosted the year’s biggest celebration of sports achievements.

The 2022 ESPYS, that event, took place in Los Angeles Wednesday night.

Curry was not, however, merely a passive emcee. The star point guard won for Best NBA Player, while his teammate Klay Thompson took home the trophy for Best Comeback Athlete. The full Warriors organization, meanwhile, won for Best Team.
