It’s that time of the year, folks – when some guy who tries to be funny but really isn’t stands in front of a bunch of athletes and makes cracks at Kobe’s rings, Vick’s dogs, and the Williams sisters’ badonkadonks while Will Ferrell plugs his new movie. It’s the 2010 ESPY Awards – a show so entertaining that John Wall has decided to skip it. Wall will not attend the awards show due to “unexpected scheduling conflicts” but we all know that just means he has better things to do than shake hands with Rebecca Lobo and the Asian guy from the Hangover. He will, however, be receiving his Saints clock, Saints helmet, and ‘Reggae Bush’ by mail.
Wall is nominated in two categories – Best Breakthrough Athlete and Best Male College Athlete. Brittney Griner is expected to win both awards.
