Watch Drake Roast LeBron James' Hairline At NBA Awards

On Monday night, the ceremony opened with a skit starring this year's host Drake as well as legendary comedian Will Ferrell.

Meanwhile, up for Coach of the Year award are Mike D'Antoni of the Houston Rockets, Gregg Popovich of the San Antonio Spurs, and Erik Spoelstra of the Miami Heat. When in doubt, just go with Michael Jordan. Russell Westbrook's MVP acceptance speech stole the show.

Drake hosting the first ever awards show seemed like a slam dunk. Ultimately she made a decision to move from the court to courtside, transitioning into sports journalism before graduation.


In a battle between two, Rockets' Eric Gordon beat out teammate Lou Williams for the NBA Sixth Man of the Year award.

Another memorable bit, albeit on a lighter side, was National Basketball Association legend Russell talking trash in the faces of big men legends Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, Alonzo Mourning, Shaquille O'Neal, David Robinson and Dikembe Mutombo, pointing at them and telling them: "I will kick your ass". The 2017 Awards are finally here and I couldn't be more excited. While Drake certainly isn't the typical comedic host, he was comfortable enough to get jokes off in the direction of some of the NBA's most prominent people. Old-school National Basketball Association, represent! "I grew up in a family that was supportive and pushed me to work hard". Congratulations to the winners.
