With just several weeks until the 2015 ESPY Awards,the list of the nominees have finally been revealed.
One week after taking home the NBA championship ring, Steph Curry’s name was added to the list of talented nominees. This is the basketball player’s first time being nominated for the coveted award.
Good ol’ LeBron James is among the nominees for the 11th year in a row. The Cavaliers player is up against Curry in two categories: Best Male Athlete and Best NBA Player. It’s a stiff competition in the Best NBA Player category. Curry and James will fight against Pelicans player Anthony Davis, Rockets star James Harden and Oklahoma City Thunder player, Russell Westbrook.
And despite her personal life, WNBA player Brittney Griner received a nod for Best WNBA Player. Griner was arrested back in April after a domestic dispute with her estranged wife, Glory Johnson. Also in the Best WNBA Player category, the gorgeous Skylar Diggins, Lynx player Maya Moore, Sparks star Candace Parker and Phoenix Mercury player, Diana Taurasi.
It’ll also be quite the battle in the Best Female Athlete category. Serena Williams, Ronda Rousey, Breanna Stewart and Lindsey Vonn will all compete for the big award.
Be sure to tune in for the ESPY Awards, hosted by Joel McHale, on July 15 at 8 p.m. on ABC.
