The Warriors pack a punch at the ESPY Awards

Each year, ESPN recognizes the best sportsmen and sportswomen of the year in the United States, and this year, it is Stephen Curry who was the master of ceremonies. The All-Star leader did not recover the statuette of the best sportsman of the year, but those of the best NBA player of the year and the record of the year. The Warriors were voted “best team of the year”, while Klay Thompson received the trophy for “best comeback”.

Here are the main trophies awarded for the 2021/22 season, including Kylian Mbappé, voted best international footballer or Candace Parker, best WNBA player. Voters also highlighted Vitali Klitschko, a former boxer who became mayor of kyiv, with the Arthur Ashe for Courage Award.
